Demba Ba's Side-Volley Against Manchester City Is One Of The Best You'll see

In the second half of today's FA Cup semifinal match, Chelsea found themselves 2-0 down against Manchester City, and looked to be headed out of the tournament. Chelsea striker Demba Ba chased down a long pass over the top, and looked to be in on goal until the ball bounced off his left leg. Ba then turned 180 degrees and, while falling down, reached back to volley a perfect shot with his right foot off the post and into the net to bring his side back within a goal.

Unfortunately, Chelsea couldn't score again. They lost, 2-1. Manchester City is through to the FA Cup final on May 11, where they'll face Wigan Athletic.
