Andre Onana the hero as Manchester United edge stubborn Coventry in dramatic FA Cup semifinal

Cameroonian goalkeeper Andre Onana was the hero as Manchester United emerged victorious against Championship side Coventry after a tense penalty shootout, securing their place in the final after what was a nail-biting encounter.

The game saw Manchester United seize an early lead with Scott McTominay’s well-timed tap-in following a precise cross from Diogo Dalot.

Harry Maguire extended their advantage with a header just before halftime, while Bruno Fernandes added a third with a deflected strike in the second half, seemingly putting United in control.

However, a very stubborn Coventry team mounted a remarkable comeback, leveling the scoreline with goals from Ellis Simms and Callum O’Hare, setting the stage for a tense finale.

Despite United’s efforts to clinch victory in regulation time and extra time, the match ultimately headed to a penalty shootout.

Manchester United endured a shaky start as Casemiro had his penalty saved, but goalkeeper Andre Onana rose to the occasion with crucial saves, including one from O’Hare.

The decisive moment came when Coventry’s Ben Sheaf missed his penalty, allowing Rasmus Hojlund to convert the winning spot-kick for Manchester United, sealing a dramatic 4-3 shootout victory.

With this hard-fought win, Manchester United secured their place in the FA Cup final, where they will face arch-rivals Manchester City in a highly anticipated showdown for the coveted trophy.

The stage is set for an epic derby clash as both teams vie for glory in one of English football’s most prestigious competitions.
