Arsenal to the Semi-final by Late Goals

Robin van Persie shot the ball

Arsenal advanced to FA Cup semi-final after beating Hull City 2-1. Hull led 1-0 as Nick Barmby scored at the 13th minute. The equalizer didn't arrive until the 75th, after a pass by Nicklas Bendtner in front of goal was deflected into the path of Andrei Arshavin who set up Robin van Persie for an easy tap-in. Then Gallas, who was stripped of the captaincy earlier in the season for criticizing his teammates, scored the winner, at the 84th minute.
