Re: White Hart Lane

So the day of the FA Cup Final arrived and there was a real buzz in the air as the clock ticked down towards kick-off.

The teams lined up on the pitch and some were surprised when the Queen came out to greet them, accompanied by her entourage. With the Queen being a secret West Ham supporter, she was a little unhappy that she had missed the League Cup Final a few months ago and had to suffer watching 'these two ghastly teams'!

The game soon began and both teams found the Wembley pitch so be much softer than their league pitches, so the ball ran a bit slower. This affected the first half of the game, with a lot of mistakes and poor passing. Norwich took the upper hand by attacking, with Notts Forest sitting back and trying to counter on the break. Both sides had a few chances which were off target, until Norwich had the best moment of the half. The Norwich striker hit the ball well, but the Forest defenders managed to bundle the ball out for a corner.

It was all equal in the second half, with Norwich still dominating play, but Forest had a good break and the Norwich defender mistimed his tackle to bring down the player. The referee awarded a direct free kick to Forest

Norwich put up a 4 man wall, but the Forest player struck the ball perfectly and the ball found the far corner of the goal. Norwich players claimed that the ball had not crossed the line, but replays showed it clearly across the line. The Forest players ran for the corner in celebration. 1-0 to Forest.

Despite Norwich attacking even harder in the last 20 minutes, they could not find the target. Forest players defended for their lives and played really well. The referee allowed some extra time, which frustrated the Forest team, but Norwich could not find a way through. The final whistle was blown and Nottingham Forest have won the FA Cup 1-0.

The Queen came back onto the pitch to award the teeny-tiny trophy to the winning team. She could be heard talking to one of her advisors that it was an awful match and she could not wait to get back home to her Corgis. Charming! The Forest players could not care, as they were too busy waving the trophy in the air and downing cheap champagne.

Norwich will go home to work out where it all went wrong, whilst Nottingham Forest will have to get over their hangovers and prepare for the Charity Shield against league winners Chelsea!
