GETTING to the FA Cup final feels as sweet as it did the first time, insists cup semi-final hero Didier Drogba.
The Chelsea striker can't help scoring at Wembley and his appetite is not about to diminish with a third final appearance since the new stadium opened for business in 2007.
“It's always good and to know we will be back here is fantastic,” said the Ivorian, who scored the goal which set the Blues on their way to their 3-0 semi-final win over Aston Villa.
He also scored in last year's semi-final at Wembley as well as in the wins in 2007 and 2009, not to mention the Carling Cup final in 2008.
“I don't decide if I'm going to score again here, though I'm very proud that I did. But the most important thing is that we are again in another final.
“It won't be easy, but we are here again. As a kid, you always dream about big stadiums and big games. I've seen some FA Cup finals before when I was in France where French players like Cantona and Anelka did well and when I come here, I want to do the same.”
Drogba says achieving a Double is something that inspires him and he wants to savour the satisfaction of landing both the league and FA Cup in the same year.
“Here in England, the Double is something really special and winning the FA Cup final is something unbelievable,” he said.
“We won the league already and I know the feeling and I want to do it to see if there's a difference winning both instead of only one.
Drogba added of the 3-0 semi-final win over Villa: “The team has responded well since the game against Inter Milan. We are playing well and today, even if we had a difficult first half, we won the game.”
