Match-winner Yaya Toure reveals delight at FA Cup triumph.
Watch FATV's interview with Yaya Toure after he scored the winning FA Cup Final goal
FA Cup Final hero Yaya Toure admitted his dream had become a reality as he scored the only goal of the game as Manchester City beat Stoke City 1-0 at Wembley.
The Ivorian, who scored the winner in the Semi-Final victory over Manchester United, lashed home with just 16 minutes to go as his side claimed their first trophy in 35 years.
And Toure admitted it was a huge achievement by Robeto Mancini’s side.
“It is fantastic for the club,” he said. “The dream is now real. It is fantastic to win – for everyone at the club it is fantastic.
“For me it is something that we promised in pre-season. We said it would be fantastic if we could win a trophy and we did.
“It [the goal] was not easy – there were a lot of players in there, but I shot at goal and it went in."
Meanwhile, goalkeeper Joe Hart believes City fully merited their FA Cup triumph: “We deserved to win this trophy as we have beaten the best,” he said.
“We beat a very good Stoke side today. The key was putting the ball in the back of the net as I didn’t think they were going to score past us today.
“We need a bit more consistency and then you never know [what City could achieve next season].”
