    This is the 1945 Football League (South) War Cup Final at Wembley between Chelsea in the dark shirts and Millwall. It was played on 7 April 1945 at Wembley in front of 90,000. Chelsea won 2-0, but lost the national final against the Northern winners, Bolton, even though that game was played at Stamford Bridge.
