Juan, who achieved 250 matches with Manchester United last Wednesday, played again in a competition that suits him very well. Since his arrival to England in 2011, he has scored 11 goals and has given 11 assists on FA Cup. Minutes after his substitution, on the 75', Cantwell scored the equalizer. The match went to extra time and Norwich, in spite of playing with 10 after a red card to Klose, were very near forcing penalties, but Maguire, on the 118, avoided it.
