Gabby Agbonlahor has admitted that it is a 'dream come true` to be playing in a cup final and to prove himself on the big stage.
Agbonlahor, currently Villa`s top scorer and not doing too badly in the Premier League scoring charts often splits fans opinions on his overall performances and goalscoring exploits is set to start in Villa`s first cup final since the 99/00 season and first league cup final appearance since the 1996 victory over Leeds United.
Speaking to skysports.com, Gabby said:
"Even if it was a different team from the lower leagues playing against United I think it would still be a tight game because it's a cup final."
"Obviously form goes out of the window - you'll just take any sort of win in the cup final.
"You always dream of playing at Wembley so playing in a cup final is a dream come true.
As a side note, and thanks to Vital Villa member Still Skeggy for highlighting a fantastic News of the World article about Gabby`s background and life growing up, and the influence of his father on the Villa mans career to date.
