Manchester City win FA Cup with goal from Yaya Toure

Yaya Toure's second-half goal gave Manchester City victory in the FA Cup Final, beating Stoke City 1-0 at Wembley.

The only goal of the game arrived in the 74th minute. David Silva released Mario Balotelli in the area and when his shot was deflected invitingly into the path of Toure he gave Stoke keeper Thomas Sorensen no chance with a thunderous finish.

The win gave Man City their first trophy in 35 years.

Roberto Mancini's side dominated throughout against a disappointing Stoke, who never came close to reproducing the form that swept Bolton Wanderers aside to reach their first FA Cup final.

Earlier this week, Roberto Mancini's side's 1-0 win over Tottenham in the Premier League ensured City will play in the Champions League next season for the first time.
