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."
