Carling Cup Winners 2011 - BIRMINGHAM CITY

City stunned Arsenal with an 89th-minute goal from substitute Obafemi Martins after a defensive mixup to win a dramatic League Cup final 2-1 on Sunday.

Martins, who came on just six minutes earlier, pounced on a blunder when defender Laurent Koscielny and goalkeeper Wojciech Szczesny failed to clear and swept the ball into the empty net with extra time approaching.

Birmningham took the lead with a Nikola Zigic header after 28 minutes before Arsenal equalised 11 minutes later through Robin van Persie.

All the talk before the final had been of Arsenal ending their six-year wait for a trophy, but Birmingham's triumph ended a much longer drought, the win coming 48 years after they lifted the 1963 League Cup.
