Jags sends us into heaven
Jags sends us into heaven

On this day in 2009 another first for Everton. First Merseyside team to play at the New Wembley against Manchester United in the FA Cup Semi Final.

The game finishing 0-0 after extra time and went to penalties.

Most Evertonian's feared the worst not just with our record of penalties but particularly after Tim Cahill missed our first! Up to the plate stepped Tim Howard to do his duty and the it fell to Phil Jagielka to step up and score the decider.

The Jag duly obliged, Everton won 4-2 on pens aet, and sent the Toffee's into delerium and put Everton into the FA Cup Final.

What a day!
