The 1999 FA Cup Final took place on 22 May 1999 and was played at the old Wembley Stadiummarker. It was contested between Manchester United and Newcastle United. Manchester United had finished as champions and Newcastle 13th in the Premier League that season. The Final was a one-sided affair, Manchester United claiming a record 10th success with a 2–0 win. Goals from Teddy Sheringham and Paul Scholes were scored in the 11th and 53rd minutes respectively.

It was the build up to United's Treble, which was completed four days later when they won the European Cup.

United's victory in the FA Cup final meant that they had won the trophy for a record tenth time, and for the fourth time under Alex Ferguson's management. They also became the first team to complete the double on three occasions, and did so with no less than four players who had featured in all three of the "doubles".

It was the second year running that Newcastle United, without an FA Cup triumph since 1955 or a major trophy at all since 1969, had been on the losing side in the final.

Match summary

First half

The first half was full of incident, a blazed Nolberto Solano effort, a booking for Dietmar Hamann and an injured Roy Keane replaced by Sheringham all in the first eight minutes. Just over 90 seconds after the substitution, Manchester United took the lead. An incisive move, crafted first by Andy Cole then by Paul Scholes with a well-weighted first time ball allowed Sheringham to drift into the box and rifle a low drive under the Newcastle goalkeeper Steve Harper. Further chances fell to Solskjær, Cole and Sheringham in the first half, but all were unable to convert their efforts. Newcastle's best chance of the half fell to Hamann, a powerfully hit long-range effort just being diverted away from goal by Peter Schmeichel.

Second half

The Newcastle manager Ruud Gullit, who knew the match was fading from his team, began the second half by replacing Hamann with Duncan Ferguson. Eight minutes into the half, Manchester United went 2–0 up. A long ball from Solskjær was chased by Ryan Giggs but was beaten to it by Nikos Dabizas. It was cleared and won back by Solskjær, passed to Sheringham with his back to goal, who rolled it into the path of Scholes and drilled into the corner of the net. Late in the game, Newcastle's Silvio Maric was one-on-one with Schmeichel but screwed his close-range effort wide of the Dane's right-hand post and the game was up.
