Wigan’s reign as FA Cup holders was ended Saturday by Arsenal which needed penalties to keep alive their hopes of ending a nine-year trophy drought.

Jordi Gomez opened the scoring for the Championship side from the penalty spot at Wembley after Per Mertesacker clumsily brought down Callum McManaman, reports the BBC.

Mertesacker levelled with a close-range header to force extra time.

Gary Caldwell and Jack Collison had penalties saved before the decisive kick was scored by Santi Cazorla
