Liverpool lost the 1996 FA Cup Final, falling to a 1-0 defeat to bitter rivals Manchester United on 11 May 1996 at Wembley. The match was a fairly unremarkable affair, with both sides cancelling each other out for most of the match. The teams were only separated five minutes from time, when Eric Cantona produced a moment of brilliance to hand his team victory. Today, the match is mostly remembered for the infamous cream suits paraded by the Liverpool players before kick off.
