Match Commentary

94' Obafemi Martins comes off the bench to win the match for Birmingham. A first trophy in over 50 years and European football for the second-city club next season.
94' FULL TIME Birmingham win the Carling Cup!!! A stunning result at Wembley. Arsenal's trophy drought continues and Birmingham cannot believe it. Szczesny's last-minute error has handed the Blues the cup and there are scenes of joy and despair on the pitch.
93' Goal kick to Arsenal, one last chance to pump the ball upfield...
