Football: Wigan ambush Everton 3-0 in FA Cup quarter-final
LONDON (AFP) - Wigan Athletic shocked Everton 3-0 at Goodison Park on Saturday to book a place in the FA Cup semi-finals for the first time in the club's history.
Roberto Martinez's side are currently threatened with relegation from the Premier League, while Everton are gunning for a top-four finish, but the Latics upset the form-book with a performance as superb as it was unexpected.
Wigan's three goals arrived within a devastating four-minute spell during the first half.
Shaun Maloney had already hit the post for Wigan by the time Maynor Figueroa broke the deadlock in the 30th minute, climbing to head in Jordi Gomez's right-wing corner at the back post.
