CECH ROLE IN CUP WIN REVEALED
Petr Cech played a major role for Chelsea during the 2010 FA Cup final clash with Portsmouth. He produced a major contribution to ensure that Chelsea completed the double by winning the FA Cup title at the end of the 2009/10 at the expense of Portsmouth.
Chelsea were the better team in the first 45 minutes, but they had no end product to show for their dominance at the expense of Portsmouth as the two teams had to settle for a goalless draw. The game came to life in the second half when Petr Cech denied Portsmouth the opportunity to take the lead. The Czech shot stopper saved the penalty from Portsmouth midfielder Kevin-Prince Boateng on 54 minutes and four minutes later, the Ghanaian rued the penalty miss after Chelsea took the lead through a Didier Drogba free-kick. The goal from Drogba turned out to be the difference between the two teams.
