Coventry City manager Mark Robins is disappointed that. They came so close to the FA Cup final but ended up losing to Manchester United in a penalty shootout.

Coventry, Championship club Showing determination from being behind 0-3 to equalize with Manchester United 3-3 until having to play extra time. And in the final moments. They almost scored twice: First from Ellis Simms, whose shot hit the crossbar, and the second in ecstasy. UFABET  Because Victor Thorp’s shot was found to be offside.

Plus, during Manchester United’s first penalty shootout, Casemiro missed the first shot. But Coventry couldn’t seize the golden opportunity. That brought some players to tears. Like many football fans.

“We told them they had made a new chapter in the history of the club. People will be talking about this game for a long tim.” Robins said in an interview after the game at Wembley.

“We were 20 seconds into the finals. (When celebrating Thorpe’s goal) and then 30 seconds later we had to go to a penalty shootout.”

“Today hurts our hearts a lot. Because we were so close. We hit the crossbar and the goal was forfeited. But I’m really proud of my players.” said Robins, a former Manchester United striker who won the FA Cup in 1990.
