FA Cup fans can re-watch a classic Final on Sunday as the clash between Manchester City and Wigan Athletic is being streamed on the official Emirates FA Cup Facebook page.

And the screening will evoke special memories for all Wigan fans, when the Lancashire club enjoyed the finest day in its history.

Robert Martinez’s side were seen as rank outsiders against a star-studded City team in the build-up.

But after matching Roberto Mancini’s men on the pitch, they ensured a thrilling end to the Final when substitute Ben Watson ghosted into the box in stoppage time to flick a header past Joe Hart and ensure Wigan took the Cup home.

FATV caught up with Watson to look back at that day and you can see the feature by clicking play in the image above.

You can watch the full game as live from 12.30pm on Easter Sunday!
