Sixth tier Havant & Waterlooville hits jackpot
[ENGLAND] Havant & Waterlooville, which plays in the sixth level of English soccer, won Wednesday's English FA Cup third-round replay with a 4-2 win over League One (third division) leader Swansea City to set up a date in the fourth round at Liverpool that could earn it $2 million in revenues.
Havant raced to a 3-0 lead after 37 minutes before holding off a late charge by Swansea.
Struggling Newcastle celebrated the news that Kevin Keegan was back as manager with a 4-1 win over second-division Stoke City in another third-round replay on Wednesday.
Keegan, 56, was named as Newcastle's new manager just hours before kickoff. He watched as the Magpies cruised past Stoke with goals from Michael Owen, Claudio Cacapa, James Milner and Damien Duff.
