Wigan defender Scharner thrilled to reach FA Cup final

Wigan Athletic defender Paul Scharner is thrilled to be in the FA Cup final after their victory over Millwall.

The Latics defeated Millwall 2-0 at Wembley.

Scharner, who played in the League Cup final during his first stint at Wigan, said: "It's unbelievable. We are in the final.

"The chairman deserves it most, and the supporters.

"In the second half they were trying to get an equaliser but we kept a clean sheet and I'm so happy to reach the final."

Wigan will return to Wembley on May 11 to play either Chelsea or Manchester City - who meet on Sunday - but Scharner is not concerned who they face next.

"It doesn't matter," he said. "The final is always tough and both teams are very strong."
