The 1977 FA Cup Final was the final match of the 1976–77 FA Cup, the 96th season of England's premier cup football competition. The match was played on 21 May 1977 at Wembley Stadiummarker, Londonmarker, and it was contested by Manchester United and Liverpool. United won the game 2-1. All three goals came in a five-minute period early in the second half. Stuart Pearson opened the scoring when he latched onto a long ball forward and drove a hard shot past Ray Clemence. Liverpool equalised through Jimmy Case soon after, as he turned and hooked a right foot half-volley into the top corner, giving Stepney no chance. However, just three minutes later, United regained the lead when Lou Macari's shot deflected off team mate Jimmy Greenhoff's chest and looped into the net past Clemence and Phil Neal on the line.

United's victory prevented Liverpool from winning The Treble of the league title, FA Cup and European Cup - Manchester United achieved this 22 years later.
