VIDEO: Mesut Ozil assists this Alexis Sanchez goal to lead FA Cup Semifinal

Championship side Reading held tough against Arsenal for the first 40 minutes of their FA Cup Semifinal game. Eventually, as it happens all too often, the great teams can find a way to score and it took Arsenal 40 minutes to do that. Mesut Ozil provided this beauty of a pass to Alexis Sanchez deep into the Reading box. Sanchez made a couple of moves and finished to give Arsenal the 1-0 lead and the momentum going into halftime.

The winner of this game will face the winner of Aston Villa and Liverpool in their FA Cup Semifinal at Wembley Stadium tomorrow at 10 AM ET on FS1.
