Tottenham's Tainio excited about Wembley appearance

Tottenham midfielder Teemu Tainio is excited ahead of today's Carling Cup final against Chelsea.

"I've never played at Wembley, so it will be a special game for me," he told the Spurs website.

"I've played in three cup finals in France and never lost one. There is so much pressure on these occasions, lots of expectation and it's just great to be out there on the pitch. Anything can happen in one game and hopefully we can lift the cup. We are playing well, we are confident but look who we're playing against, a good Chelsea side that has won plenty recently.

"It's a big game for everyone involved at the club and when you see fans around, you can feel how much it means to them."
