CARDIFF, Wales (AP) — Fraizer Campbell scored from two second-half corners Sunday as newly promoted Cardiff stunned Manchester City 3-2 for its first top-flight victory in more than 50 years.
Campbell put Cardiff up 2-1 against the run of play when he nodded home from two yards out in the 79th minute and then added a second from another corner eight minutes later to secure a massive upset in the team's first Premier League home game.
Alvaro Negredo pulled a goal back in injury time but City couldn't find an equalizer despite a full six minutes added on.
We'll be the underdogs for a lot of the games this season but, as we showed, we've got great determination and hopefully that'll see us through," Campbell said. "The most special thing was getting the three points. When you're a promoted side, you don't want to wait too long to get any points on the board so today was a massive bonus for us."
Cardiff is playing top-flight football for the first time in 51 years after being promoted last season, and even a draw against the heavily favored City would probably have caused widespread jubilation at Cardiff City Stadium.
A single point was what most fans were hoping for against a City team that beat Newcastle 4-0 last Monday to start its campaign — especially after Edin Dzeko put the visitors ahead with a fierce strike in the 52nd minute.
