Manchester City ended its 35-year trophy drought Saturday,
winning the FA Cup on Yaya Toure’s second-half goal in a 1-0
victory over Stoke.


Toure struck with an unstoppable shot in the 74th minute after
Mario Balotelli’s deflected effort fell into his path. The Ivory
Coast midfielder was immediately mobbed by his teammates.
Roberto Mancini’s expensively assembled side had dominated the
first half without reward, with Thomas Sorensen saving brilliantly
against Balotelli and David Silva missing the target from close
Stoke’s best chance fell to Kenwyne Jones in the 61st minute,
but the striker was denied by City goalkeeper Joe Hart.
