Swansea City won their first major trophy with ease as they defeated Bradford City 5-0 in the Capital One Cup Final at Wembley Sunday.

Nathan Dyer opened the scoring for the Premier League side in the 16th minute and Michu gave the Swans a two-goal cushion five minutes before the interval.

The final was effectively over as a contest in the 47th minute when Dyer added his second.

Bradford goalkeeper Matt Duke, whose saves had been so crucial in helping the League Two side reach the final, was dismissed in the 59th minute when he tripped Jonathan de Guzman inside the area.

Dyer squabbled with De Guzman over the right to take the spot-kick, but the Dutchman won out and slotted the ball past substitute goalkeeper Jon McLaughlin.

De Guzman then added his second of the game in injury time as Swansea created the biggest-ever winning margin in a League Cup final.
