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."

h Daniel. I could spend hours on this subject putting the world to rights. You can even take a step back and ask why football fans (and society in general) have this need to know that something will happen before it actually does. There are times this important, when it comes to things like war, food production and natural disasters. A man you've never met changing his job? Not so much.

reat article. Hits the nail on the head. Encapsulates why I don't read tabloid newspapers anymore. The only thing worse is the 'told you so first' headline when they get lucky.
