Kieran Gibbs was part of the Arsenal squad that came from two goals down to beat Hull City 3-2 in the final to win 2014 FA Cup title and end their long wait for a major trophy.

Arsene Wenger selected Kieran Gibbs, Laurent Koscielny, Per Mertersacker and Bacary Sagna as his defenders in front of Polish shot stopper Lukasz Fabianski. Arsenal were not well organised in the opening ten minutes as they conceded twice. James Chester gave the Tigers a fourthminute lead. Hull City skipper Curtis Davies doubled the advantage for his team four minutes later.

Arsenal were up against it in the opening minutes of the game until Spanish midfielder Santi Cazorla pulled one back with a 17th minute free-kick to give the Gunners a route back into the game. Arsenal dominated possession for the rest of the first half but they were unable to pull level before the half-time break. After a shaky first ten minutes, Kieran Gibbs and the other Arsenal defenders were able to keep the Hull City forwards at bay.

The Gunners were heading for a disappointing outcome until the 71st minute when Frenchman Koscielny scored the much-needed equaliser to take the game into extra time. Welsh national team midfielder Aaron Ramsey then turned out to be recipient of the winning goalin extra time. His goal came in the fourth minute of second half in extra time.

Arsenal were able to see off the Tigers in a five-goal thriller thanks to the extra time strike from Ramsey. The Gunners were able to end their barren run of nine years without a trophy. The last major trophy was in 2005 in the same competition. Arsenal won their tenth FA Cup title by beating rivals Manchester United on penalties after the two teams played out a goalless draw.
