Grudge match looms in 2nd round of FA Cup

Tools

LONDON (AP) — Nicknamed the "Crazy Gang" because of the team's eccentric style and ragtag mix of players, Wimbledon became one of the most unlikely winners of the FA Cup when it defeated Liverpool in the 1988 final.

Twenty-four years later, the club no longer exists in the same form after its controversial move from south London, but a team resurrected in its place by angry fans will play a high-profile match in England's top cup competition.

AFC Wimbledon, created in 2002, will play Milton Keynes Dons, the club that took over the identity of the original Wimbledon. They will meet in the second round of the cup on the weekend of Dec. 1-2 after both won first-round replays this week. It will be the first time they have met, and the game promises to be a highly charged, emotional affair.
