Aiyegbeni Yakubu says he never feared he had missed out on FA Cup glory when he quit English football for China in 2012.

Chris Samba has left QPR to rejoin Anzhi Makhachkala for a "club record undisclosed fee".
Rangers made Samba their record signing in January, but the centre-half was unable to prevent relegation to the Championship.
Samba's form at Loftus Road fluctuated, and at one stage he became embroiled in a Twitter row with supporters questioning his wages.
But Anzhi have not been put off re-signing the 29-year-old, who spent a year in Russia before his move to London.
A statement on the QPR website read: "The club would like to wish Chris all the best for the future and thank him for his contribution to QPR."
