Everton ace Tim Cahill is desperate to taste FA Cup glory.

A burning desire for an FA Cup winners' medal will be driving the former Millwall man on in their replay at Sunderland.

“I’ve lost in two FA Cup finals, I’ve been to Wembley twice and tasted defeat but it still counts for a hell of a lot for me," said Cahill.

"I carry massive pride in this competition.

“To get to two finals and lose is obviously heartbreaking, but there is pride in the achievement of getting to Wembley too. You could say it is unfinished business for me, but there are plenty of people with that.

“We are a good football team, we have developed a hell of a lot since the start of the season and we are getting stronger. The manager is really starting to get the best out of the players and believe me, anything is still possible for us still.

“It’s tough going to the Stadium of Light, but if you want to win the cup you have to win tough games, it’s that simple. We are not out of it, we have definitely hit a good run of form apart from the Liverpool game, and it’s all about not losing – and we didn’t lose today."
