Portsmouth manager Harry Redknapp has urged his players to become 'heroes in history' by lifting the FA Cup on Saturday.
Pompey and Championship side Cardiff City go head-to-head - live on Sky Sports 1 and HD 1 - at Wembley with both teams gunning for FA Cup glory.
And ahead of what promises to be a fiercely contested encounter, Redknapp has rallied his Portsmouth troops, challenging them to ensure the club lifts the trophy for the first time since 1939.
"These lads we have now are a great bunch, a pleasure to work with, but they need to win this trophy on Saturday and make themselves heroes in history," he said.
"Whatever happens it has been a great season despite losing four matches in a row (in the Premier League) right at the end. That was disappointing but it won't matter a bit if we win the cup.
"Not even Europe will matter then - not until later. It will be great to get into the Uefa Cup just for the sake of it but right now I'm concentrating on just this one game."
