Synonymous for decades with having violent fans , English soccer team Millwall has gained a reputation in recent years for being a so-called “giant killer” in the FA Cup.Both sides of the club were on show on Saturday.On another day of surprises in the famous competition, Millwall scored a winning goal in injury time to eliminate Premier League team Everton 3-2 at the fourth-round stage. Millwall, which plays in the second tier, has won five straight FA Cup home games against top-flight opponents dating to 2013 when it reached the semifinals.The victory was marred, however, by violence off the field. Police say they believe fans of Millwall and Everton were involved in fighting before the match , during which a man was slashed in the face. He was taken to hospital and his injuries aren’t life-threatening.“The behavior of those involved in this incident is nothing short of disgraceful,” said Detective Inspector Darren Young of the Metropolitan Police, adding that footage of the brawling which was circulating on social media has “quite rightly elicited shock and disgust.”Everton fans were held back inside Millwall’s stadium after the final whistle on safety grounds.Millwall was renowned for its struggle with hooliganism in the 1970s and 80s. That reputation was revived during the FA Cup semifinals in 2013, when its fans turned on each other during a loss to Wigan at Wembley Stadium, leading to 14 arrests inside the stadium.By losing at Millwall, Everton became the sixth Premier League side to lose to lower-league opposition, after Fulham, Leicester Cheap Inter Milan Soccer Team Uniform , Cardiff, Huddersfield and Southampton.Within hours, there was a seventh as West Ham was stunned 4-2 at AFC Wimbledon, a team languishing in last place in the third tier.Wolverhampton Wanderers avoided becoming another Premier League team humbled only by scoring in the third minute of injury time to salvage a 2-2 draw at third-tier Shrewsbury.There was no danger of Manchester City being upset, however, as the English champion thrashed Burnley 5-0 at home to stay in the hunt for trophies on four fronts.EVERTON EMBARRASSEDUnlike many other managers of mid-ranking Premier League teams, Everton’s Marco Silva treated the FA Cup with respect by fielding his strongest possible side against Millwall. Not that it did him any good.In the last attack of the game, Murray Wallace converted from close range after a scramble inside the area following a free kick as Everton became the latest top-flight team to stumble at The Den.As a third-tier team, Millwall beat three Premier League opponents — Bournemouth, Watford and Leicester — on its way to the quarterfinals in the 2016-17 season. In 2013, it beat top-flight Aston Villa en route to the semifinals.A controversial goal from Jake Cooper, who used his hand to bundle the ball home, allowed Millwall to draw level at 2-2. Silva complained to the fourth official in the technical area after seeing the incident on the big screen. At the same time, Millwall coach Neil Harris was shouting up to the stands , demanding the screen stop showing the goal.WIMBLEDON MAKES NEW CUP MEMORIESThree goals down after 46 minutes, West Ham threatened to avoid humiliation by scoring twice in the space of 14 minutes to reduce the deficit to 3-2 by the 71st.Wimbledon held firm, though, and clinched victory with a goal from a corner in the 88th.Of course, this wasn’t the biggest upset in the FA Cup by a team called Wimbledon. In 1988, Wimbledon FC beat Liverpool in the final at Wembley.That club relocated to Milton Keynes, north of London, and became known as MK Dons. Disaffected fans responded by forming a new club in 2002, AFC Wimbledon, which started out in the ninth tier and has risen rapidly up the league system.WOLVES ESCAPEMatt Doherty, a wing back with a taste for attacking, popped up in the box to head in Adama Traore’s cross to keep alive Wolves’ chances of a fifth FA Cup title, and a first since 1960.Wolves, who knocked out Liverpool in the third round Cheap Liverpool Soccer Team Uniform , rested goalkeeper Rui Patricio and started with key players such as Raul Jimenez, Joao Moutinho and Jonny Castro on the bench for the game despite not being in genuine danger of relegation in its first season back in the Premier League.With Liverpool and Arsenal — beaten by Manchester United on Friday — already eliminated, Wolves are the fifth highest-ranked team left in the competition.NEWCASTLE FALL SHORT AGAINNewcastle’s woeful record in the FA Cup continued with a 2-0 home loss to fellow Premier League team Watford.Not since 2006 has Newcastle reached the fifth round. That predates the arrival of owner Mike Ashley, who has made Premier League survival a priority for the club rather than a run in a cup competition.Brighton was taken to a replay by second-tier West Bromwich Albion after a 0-0 draw. ATLANTA (AP) — As confetti flew all around, Atlanta United’s players bounced up and down in the middle of the field, celebrating with the same passion they showed last December.No, it wasn’t as significant as winning the MLS Cup.But in some ways, this felt even more satisfying.Atlanta scored a victory for all of Major League Soccer by beating one of the Mexico’s powerhouse teams.Josef Martinez scored on a penalty kick in the 65h minute after being stopped on his first attempt, and United gave MLS rare bragging rights over Liga MX by knocking off Club América 3-2 for the Campeones Cup on Wednesday night.“These are the two champions against each other,” Atlanta United coach Frank de Boer said. “It’s good to see we’re getting closer.”The matchup between the reigning MLS Cup champion and the Liga MX team that won the Campeón de Campeones last month was an entertaining, back-and-forth affair before 40,128 fans at Mercedes-Benz Stadium, split nearly evenly between red-clad United fans and yellow-wearing América supporters.Atlanta United grabbed an early lead, América surged ahead early in the second half , but the home team pulled off a comeback of its own to add another trophy to its case.“They’re obviously a great team,” said Emerson Hyndman, who gave Atlanta a lead just 5 minutes into the game. “We knew it was going to be tough match. But I think the way we competed tonight showed we can compete with teams in Mexico. It was a great team performance. It showed how far we’ve come”This one felt especially good for MLS, which has struggled to make inroads against North America’s dominant soccer country. Liga MX teams have won all 11 CONCACAF Champions League titles, and Tigres UANL beat Toronto FC 3-1 in the inaugural Campeones Cup last year.But Atlanta came out on top against an América team that sent out all but one starter from the lineup used for its most recent Liga MX game. With an important MLS match coming up at Portland, United showed its depth by going with five new starters including backup goalkeeper Alec Kann, who gave Brad Guzan the night off and made a huge save in the opening minutes off a header.“He looked very confident in goal,” de Boer said about Kann. “I’m very proud of him.”Martinez was stymied by goalkeeper Oscar Jiménez on a penalty late in the first half that was awarded after a VAR review. America went ahead for the first time at 2-1 on Roger Martinez’s goal off a corner in the 57th, but United tied the game just 2 minutes later on Jeff Larenowitz’s laser strike from about 30 yards out that appeared to deflect off an América defender in front of the net, leaving a flat-footed Jiménez with no chance.Not long after, United notched the winner. It was set up by a sloppy tackle from Guido Rodriguez, who slid into Florentin Pogba — the defender wasn’t even facing the goal — for a takedown just inside the area. Referee Joel Aguilar quickly pointed to the spot, where Josef Martinez blasted a shot past the keeper into the top left corner.Martinez, the reigning MLS MVP and in the midst of a record streak of 10 straight league games with a goal Cheap Manchester United Soccer Team Uniform , tried to get cute with his first penalty attempt. He approached the ball with a soaring stutter-step before hitting a softer shot that Jiménez batted away with a diving save.In the end, that miscue was forgotten.América finished with only 10 players after Bruno Valdés was sent off in the 72nd for shoving down Martinez as he was sprinting toward the Mexican team’s goal.“Obviously, I’m very angry,” América coach Miguel Herrera said through an interpreter. “We gave them too many opportunities. We didn’t play to the best of our abilities.”When the whistle sounded, the United players celebrated furiously in the middle of the field, thrilled to claim the second trophy in their three-year existence. They’ll have a chance at another prize in less than two weeks when they host Minnesota United in the final of the U.S. Open Cup.“That’s what we play for,” Hyndman said with a smile. “Winning trophies.”Hyndman scored the opening goal off a quick flick from Dion Pereira, setting up a low, left-footed that skidded just beyond the reach of a diving Jimenez.Kann caught a huge break when a pass all the way through the area to Renato Ibarra streaking down the far side resulted in a shot that slammed off the crossbar.But Ibarra got another chance in the 15th and made it count. Roger Martinez slipped around defender Franco Escobar right next to the goal and guided a soft pass to Ibarra, who banged it off the underside of the crossbar.In the end, Atlanta United was the team that celebrated.They were joined by all of MLS.“For the team, it’s huge. And the league,” Kann said. “That is one of the best teams in North America. It’s huge for us to bring it home. We deserved to win.”
