The Welsh midfielder claimed the winner as Arsenal came from two-goals behind before claiming a 3-2 extra-win over Hull City.

Ramsey's winner came just 11 minutes before penalties would have been needed as he swept the ball home following a neat back-heel from Olivier Giroud.

"It is mind blowing, I dreamt about this day as a kid and it hasn't quite sunk in yet," he told Sky Sports.

"I am more delighted for the team that we have won a trophy this year, we deserved it and the manager deserved it, he has stuck by his players after we were questioned a few times but he never had any doubt and we believed in it ourselves and hopefully this will be the start of many.

"I couldn't do this without my team-mates and I am delighted to be in this team."

Ramsey admits that getting back into the game quickly through Santi Cazorla after going two-behind - was crucial.

"We knew ourselves that Santi Cazorla's free kick was important and we had time to get back into the game but I thought we were in control," he said.

"In extra-time at 2-2, things go through your mind like penalties but it is important to keep going and I managed to get into the box and get that one."

hould have stayed because we carried him for 6.5 years. And then he has a breakthrough season, and was gone soon after. MU fans, you would be as disgusted had C Ronaldo left in 2007 and not 2009.

ood grief. Someone guessed that the form English player at the moment might be in his national side with some other players? And that's espionage? Now if they discovered that Emile Heskey was going to be in the starting line up.... at right back.... THAT would be espionage. Give it a rest Roy.
