Magic of the FA Cup still well and truly alive

Lincoln became the first non-league team to reach the FA Cup quarterfinals in more than a century by beating Premier League side Burnley 1-0 with an 89th-minute goal overnight. Raggett connected with a corner at the back post to head the ball into the goal in front of the Imps fans.

Lincoln have already beaten Guiseley, Altrincham, Oldham, Ipswich Town and Brighton and Hove Albion in this season competition.

Minor league Lincoln City produced a huge FA Cup shock to beat top-flight Burnley 1-0 and reach the quarter-finals for the first time in their history on Saturday.

"It's brought the city together", said Chris Ashton, a lifelong Lincoln fan who helped organize supporters' coaches.

Lincoln frustrated Burnley throughout the game, with striker Matt Rhead and Barton often outmuscling one another as tensions grew in the final minutes.

An undrafted free agent out of UMass, Cruz signed with the Giants in 2010 but didn't emerge as a star until 2011. Cruz had been relegated to the third wide receiver spot this season behind Odell Beckham Jr and Sterling Shepard.

All of which is not to say that Alli, whose 20th goal came in Tottenham's 2-0 defeat of Chelsea last month, will develop into a better player than the illustrious names above, nor that he will go on to surpass their considerable medal hauls at club level.
