USMNT’s Haji Wright nails stoppage-time pen in Coventry City’s FA Cup comeback vs Manchester United (video)

Coventry City’s Haji Wright now has a goal on his resume as famous to his club as any scored by an American in English football.

Wright converted a penalty in the fifth minute of stoppage time at Wembley Stadium on Sunday, completing Coventry’s comeback from 3-0 down to reach extra time with Manchester United in an FA Cup semifinal.

Aaron Wan-Bissaka handled a ball in the box to give the Sky Blues a brilliant chance to force extra time, and the 26-year-old USMNT forward kept his cool to smash home for 3-3. He’s the first American to score in an FA Cup semifinal.

Man United led 2-0 at the break through Scott McTominay and Harry Maguire, then made it 3-0 before the hour mark when Bruno Fernandes struck from close range.

But Ellis Simms scored a pretty half-volley and Callum O’Hare’s long shot took a wicked turn off Wan-Bissaka to beat Onana with 11 minutes to play.

What a moment for Wright, who left New York Cosmos at a young age to join Schalke and has since played for six European clubs and scored for the USMNT at a World Cup.
