Wembley: Fans Howard Hodgson and Jonny Gould roundup an emotional FA Cup semi-final victory for Aston Villa

Villa give Stevie G the bum's rush.

Aston Villa reach their first FA Cup Final since 2000 after a 2-1 win over Liverpool in the semifinal.

Manager Tim Sherwood said they bamboozled the Reds who didn't perform to their highest capability but Villa, through goals from Christian Benteke and Fabian Delph showed great determination to win.

It was the Reds who'd scored first through Philippe Coutinho. But as Brendan Rodgers contends with why Liverpool didn't show up for the big occasion, Sherwood is measuring up Villa's Cup Final suits!

What a turnaround since his appointment after the defeat at Hull!

Here's Howard and Jonny reliving the game right at the final whistle.
