The 31-year-old had spent the last several weeks deputising for on-loan Spaniard Joel Robles but returned to the starting side against their Championship opponents.

He is now determined to hold on to his spot and become the first Omani to step out at Wembley Stadium in a FA Cup final.

"I've missed the last few games in the league. That was the gaffer's decision, but we have a big squad and everybody has to be ready," Al Habsi told AFP.

"This feeling (yesterday) in the semi-final was fantastic and I imagine the final will be something amazing.

"I will be the first from Oman and the Middle East to play in the final. Everyone is so happy there. I am so proud for myself and the team."

f Klopp is available and willing to go there, they have to sign him up. Far better manager than Rodgers. The reason Liverpool fail in so many big games is the inflexible nature of their manager and his inability to find strikers who fit into his inflexible style of play. A feature of nearly every game that the team comes up short is the way the opposition midfield appears to overpower them. It's too easy.

est player award should not go to a player who's second best at all the importent categories (i.e goals, assists etc) just because his team is at the top. If you are not first you are last; if you're second you are the first loser ( looking at you Hazard). David De Gea for POTY.
