African trio, Andre Onana, Amad Diallo and Sofyan Amrabat have won the English FA Cup with Manchester United.

Onana and Amrabat featured for the Red Devils in the final against Manchester City in the final while Diallo watched from the bench.

Despite missing the final, Diallo was the star of the quarter-finals as Manchester United defeated Liverpool in a seven-goal thriller.

Meanwhile, Amrabat was one of the best players in the United team in the final against City, nullifying forward Erling Haaland.

Onana gave the Red Devils a scare after his mistake led to City's consolation in the 87th minute but early strikes from youngsters Alejandro Garnacho and Kobbie Mainoo were enough for the English giants.

It was a sweet revenge for United who lost in the final last season to the treble winners.

Amrabat could leave the Old Trafford outfit at the end of the season following the end of his loan spell but United have the option of making the deal a permanent one.

Meanwhile, Diallo is expected to play a role in the future of the club.

Onana reacts after FA Cup triumph

Earlier, Sports Brief reported that Manchester United goalkeeper, Andre Onana, reached out to fans following the team's thrilling FA Cup victory.

The Red Devils defeated their rivals, Manchester City, 2-1 at a packed Wembley Stadium on Saturday, May 25.

Onana's stellar performance, including several crucial saves, was pivotal in securing the trophy.

Man United beat City to win FA Cup

Sports Brief also reported that Erik ten Hag made a convincing case to be spared the sack as Manchester United upset Manchester City to take the FA Cup with a shock 2-1 victory in Saturday's final.

Ten Hag was reportedly set to be dismissed regardless of the result at Wembley after a troubled campaign that even the United manager described as "terrible" this week.

But United's hierarchy might be having second thoughts after Ten Hag's tactical masterclass ruined City's history bid.
