Crystal Palace defender Andersen: We're targeting Wembley

Crystal Palace defender Joachim Andersen was pleased after their FA Cup win against Stoke.

Andersen produced an amazing goalline clearance at 1-1 before Palace teammate Jairo Riedewald hit the winner.

The Dane said, "It was a good ball in and a little bit of miscommunication between me and Jack [Butland]. After it was a good clearance. I was happy with that.

"It was a difficult match today. They were really compact and worked really hard. They were not the easiest conditions but we got through.

"They kept going, they fought and did everything they could. It was a really difficult game.

"At half-time we were frustrated. We knew we could do better. The second half was a bit better. We just kept going and maybe they got a little tired and we were a little bit lucky.

"That's what we're aiming for [Wembley]. We want to go as far as possible.

"A good opponent at home would be nice [in the quarters]. Anything can happen in football."
