Wembley—London, England

Crystal Palace 1-0 Watford AET


A tense final at Wembley was settled in extra time, and Crystal Palace will be the third and final team promoted to the English Premier League season.

Wilfried Zaha's dazzling run saw Marco Cassetti bring him down in the box, and Kevin Phillips smashed the penalty home.

Palace played a compact game and limited Watford to very few chances, and Gianfranco Zola's side really struggled to make a telling impact on the game.

Congratulations to the Eagles!
