The 128th FA Cup Final will be contested on May 30 at Wembley between Chelsea and Everton. That was confirmed over the weekend with respective victories over Arsenal and Manchester United.Frank Lampard was instrumental in the Stamford Bridge side's progress on Saturday, setting up goals for Florent Malouda and Didier Drogba. Meanwhile, with Sir Alex Ferguson putting out a second-string side on Sunday, Everton progressed thanks to a penalty shootout after a dull 0-0 draw.Sadly there was nothing to match the drama of Man Utd v Arsenal in 1999 when Ryan Giggs scored probably the greatest FA Cup goal of all time, or Gazza's free-kick for Spurs against Arsenal.Cup finals are always special occasions, and over the years have thrown up a variety of heroes. Ricky Villa scoring the best ever Wembley FA Cup final goal against Manchester City, Charlie George's winning celebration against Liverpool in 1971, Trevor Brooking's diving header against Arsenal in 1980... the list goes on.Icons has plenty of great FA Cup memorabilia in store, just check out the following:Ossie Ardiles And Ricky Villa Signed Tottenham Hotspur 1981 FA Cup Final ShirtEric Cantona Signed Manchester United 1996 FA Cup Winners ShirtBobby Charlton Signed Manchester United 1963 FA Cup Final ShirtAllan Clarke Signed Leeds United 1972 FA Cup Final ShirtSteven Gerrard Signed Print - Gerrard's FinalGlenn Hoddle Signed Tottenham 1982 FA Cup Winners Shirt
