    Chelsea seal double with Drogba goal


    by ODN


    Didier Drogba won the double for Chelsea with the only goal in a remarkable FA Cup final against Portsmouth at Wembley.

    Drogba's 37th goal of the season was a free-kick just before the hour that found the net with precision from 20 yards.

    It maintained Drogba's impressive record of scoring in all six competitive games he has played at the new Wembley and confirmed Chelsea as only the seventh club to complete the league and FA Cup double, a pretty significant achievement in Carlo Ancelotti's first season in charge.

    Chelsea hit the woodwork five times before the interval, including a terrible miss from Salomon Kalou and Kevin-Prince Boateng failed to convert a penalty shortly before Drogba's winner that could have set up a fairytale finish to a shambolic season of turmoil at Portsmouth.

    Frank Lampard also fired wide from the spot three minutes from time.
