Quiz! Can you name the players who featured in Arsenal 1-2 Manchester United, 1999? (FA Cup semi-final replay)

David Beckham, Arsenal 1999

They’d thrashed out 210 minutes' worth of football before it really got going, but nobody really remembers that these days.

Very easily forgotten is that this legendary FA Cup tie – that of Peter Schmeichel’s last-minute penalty heroics against Dennis Bergkamp; of Ryan Giggs’s impressive hairy escapades – was in fact a replay, played after a goalless draw three days earlier at the same venue.

After 120 minutes of stalemate, this clash between English football’s greatest footballing rivals got its spark early in the replay when a Manchester United golden boy swept home gloriously from 25 yards.

On the hour-mark: enter Giggs from the substitutes’ bench… only for Arsenal to equalise within nine minutes. But you know the rest.

So who kicked a ball in that glorious semi-final showdown in the West Midlands? Since it’s not among our more difficult quizzes, we’re only giving you four minutes to get this one done – which should still be ample time for your bulging brain. After you’re done, show us your time @FourFourTwo...
