Lacina Traore: Targets a trip to Wembley in May with Everton

The 6ft 8in striker, who used to watch the May showpiece at Wembley in his native Ivory Coast, bagged a fourth-minute opener at Goodison Park thanks to an instinctive backheel to help the Toffees on their way to a 3-1 win.

And Traore is now aiming to help the Merseysiders win the competition for the first time in 19 years as Roberto Martinez's side were drawn away to Arsenal in the quarter-finals.

"It's nice to be playing in this famous cup competition," Traore, who joined the Goodison Park club on-loan from Monaco in January told the Daily Mirror.

"I watched the games as a kid and it would be a dream to be able to get to Wembley and play my part.

"Arsenal are a big team, but we will just get on with it. I've come to a good team with good players. I think we can go all the way, hopefully.

"We'll be fighting hard to get to the final and fighting hard in the league, because we want to get what we deserve from this season."

was there, it was embarrassing - the team looked totally unbalanced from the off, the defence was woeful and when Mikel came off injured it got even worse with nobody in front of them. Up front on several occasions we had opportunities and nobody would shoot - it was a complete farse! On the back of Salah's performance I'm glad there is talk of getting shot...

reat to see Tommy Rosicky getting some love. A wonderful player. Such a pity we lost so long to injury. I was so excited when we signed him, this resurgence only makes the absences seem more of a lost opportunity.
