Anichebe wants semi-final involvement

Published Add your comment

After being forced to watch Everton's run to the FA Cup final in 2009 from the sidelines, there are few players more eager to be involved in Saturday's semi-final against Liverpool than striker Victor Anichebe.

The 23-year-old missed almost a year of football after suffering a serious knee injury in a tackle by Kevin Nolan against Newcastle that February, including the 2-1 defeat by Chelsea at Wembley.

Looking ahead to Saturday, he said: "Everyone wants to be part of Wembley, whether you're playing, on the bench or just cheering on the squad. We had a good squad who missed out last time with injuries."
