Twitter lights up after thrilling Cup night

It promised something new and exciting and the Westfield FFA Cup made good on that promise after a thrilling start across three states on Tuesday night. Pretty soon #FFACup was trending before a few celebratory selfies were snapped as the Cup took hold of the public’s imagination on a night of wonderful drama.

We saw 15 goals, red cards, two former NSL champions progress while a self-confessed “pub team” from Melbourne's South Springvale are through to the last 16 after a penalty shootout as their Cinderella story continued. 

And to top it all off, two brothers turned heroes for their side in a stunning comeback.

Brisbane Strikers, Olympic FC and Sydney Olympic all joined the Victorian third-tier club  South Springvale in the next round of the competition after plenty of drama across all four matches.
