Arsenal midfielder Aaron Ramsey buried a one-time shot in the 109th minute of the FA Cup final against Hull City on Saturday, giving the club a record-tying 11th title in the storied tournament, per ESPN Stats & Info.
Arsenal fell behind by two goals within the first nine minutes of the match but responded with a 17th-minute strike from midfielder Santi Cazorla and then tied it in the 71st minute thanks to defender Laurent Koscielny.
The title broke a nine-year trophy drought for the Gunners, although they have managed to qualify for the UEFA Champions League every year since 1998-99. Arsenal's last trophy came in 2005 during the same competition, with their last Premier League title coming back in 2004.
The near-decade without a trophy for Arsene Wenger's side had become somewhat of a running joke amongst football fans, with the Daily Mail listing a number of footballing accomplishments that occurred during Arsenal's drought:
- Chelsea FC have gone through nine managers, including Jose Mourinho twice.
- Manchester United have won the Premier League five times, plus the Champions League once.
- Lionel Messi has won the Ballon d'Or four times, while also winning the Champions League three times with FC Barcelona.
