Liverpool midfielder Lucas Leiva has appealed for the prayers of Liverpool fans as he hopes to play at Wembley for the first time with the Reds.
Lucas has missed Liverpool’s last four visits through injury and is desperate to play in the Capital One Cup final after their semi-final win over Stoke on penalties.
The Brazilian scored the sixth penalty in the shoot-out then won by Joe Allen’s spot-kick and then told the Liverpool official website: “Fingers crossed now! Everyone knows I’ve never played [at Wembley] and we still have a month to go but I ask everyone to pray that I can get there and help Liverpool to win!
“I always helped to get there but have never been able to be in the final. Hopefully I will be this time and that’s why I’m really happy. Today I played my 300th game for the club [as well], it’s amazing.
“[Playing at Wembley] was always in my mind but I don’t want to talk too much because it’s still far away. I remember last year when we got to the semi-final [of the FA Cup] and the day before the game I got an injury, but I’m sure it won’t happen again!
“I’m doing everything right, I think this year has been a very good year for me and I think I deserve to play there and hopefully win a title for the club.”
