  • Football:
    • FA Cup Final: Liverpool 3 – 3 West Ham United Liverpool win 3–1 on penalties: In the best FA Cup Final for decades, compared by commentators to the classic "Matthews Final" of 1953, for the second year running the FA Cup Final goes to extra time and a penalty shoot-out. West Ham take a 2-goal lead in the first half, through an own goal from Jamie Carragher and Dean Ashton before Djibril Cissé brings it back to 2–1 at half time. Steven Gerrard scores the equaliser in the 53rd minute, then defender Paul Konchesky puts West Ham back in the lead ten minutes later, with a cross-come-shot. But in the 91st minute, Gerrard scores a sensational goal, a well-hit 35-yard drive, worthy of levelling any football match. Extra time produced no goals, so it was onto penalties, and Liverpool's Pepe Reina is the hero, saving 3 of West Ham's 4 penalties from Bobby Zamora, Konchesky and Anton Ferdinand, to give Liverpool their 7th FA Cup, and their first since 2001.
    • Scottish Cup Final: Heart of Midlothian 1 – 1 Gretna Hearts win 4–2 on penalties: Third-tier Gretna's fairy tale story comes to an end at last, but not before they give SPL side Hearts a scare by taking the match to extra time and a penalty shoot-out. Rudi Skácel gave Hearts a 1–0 lead in the 39th minute, and they held that lead until the 76th minute. Deividas Česnauskis gave away a penalty when he tackled John O'Neil in the penalty area. Ryan McGuffie took the penalty, but was expertly saved by goalkeeper Craig Gordon, but he couldn't hold onto it, and McGuffie scored the rebound. Then in the last minute of extra time, Paul Hartley kicked out at Gretna defender Derek Townsley which earned him a 2nd yellow and he had to watch the shootout from the sidelines. Hearts scored all 4 of their penalties from Steven Pressley, Robbie Neilson, Skácel and Michal Pospíšil, while Gretna only scored 2 with 2 misses (Gavin Skelton – hit the bar & Townsley – saved by Gordon). Hearts win the Scottish Cup for the seventh time, and is their first since 1998.
