Wigan striker Kone convinced they already have one foot in FA Cup final

Wigan Athletic striker Arouna Kone hopes to be the latest Ivorian to reach the FA Cup final.

There is a good tradition of Ivory Coast players doing well in English football. Didier Drogba, the Daddy to them all, and Yaya Toure have scored FA Cup final winners in recent years.

"It's my turn now. I am going to score and we are going to win the cup," Kone told the Mail on Sunday. "Without meaning to demean Millwall, the draw for the semi-final has given us a great motivation. We should be able to win that match and reach the final."
