Saturday May 30th, 2015

Arsenal defeated Aston Villa 4–0 to win the 2015 FA Cup Final on Saturday at Wembley Stadium.

The victory was capped off by a stoppage-time goal from forward Olivier Giroud, who came off the bench.

Theo Walcott started up front for the Gunners over Giroud and scored the first goal of the game on a first-half assist from Alexis Sanchez.

Sanchez then gave Arsenal a 2–0 lead early in the second half on a strike from outside the box, while Per Mertesacker put the Gunners up three on a header 12 minutes later. 

Giroud's goal, which came off a cross from Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain, can be seen below.
