The semi-final went to a replay after a goalless draw three days earlier and it turned out to be one of the greatest matches in the history of the competition, with drama from start to finish at Villa Park. David Beckham opened the scoring with a sublime long-range strike in the 17th minute but Roy Keane’s sending off and Neville’s clumsy foul on Ray Parlour inside the box looked to give Arsenal the advantage as the clock wound down.
