Jamie's Wembley dream

Jamie O'Hara has the chance to finally live his Wembley dream for the England Under-21s on Friday night.

The midfielder was not included our squad for the Carling Cup Final against Chelsea last season, but now he has the chance to put that personal heartbreak behind him.

As a fan, Jamie has experienced the atmosphere of a Wembley international, and now he cannot wait to lap it up on the pitch in an important European Championship qualifier with Portugal Under-21s.

He said: "I missed out on the Carling Cup Final so it will be great to go back there and hopefully be involved in the game. It will be a dream come true.

"Wembley is unbelievable and even better than you think when you get there. I went to see the England game against Croatia and I said to my dad that I would love to play here one day.

"It was only a couple of months later that I had the chance to play there for Spurs, but it wasn't to be. Hopefully this time I can get out on the pitch and it will be a special moment for me."

Tickets for the match are still on sale and Jamie is hoping England fans come in their numbers to help the Young Lions to a Play Off place.

He added: "It will be nice to get a big crowd and cheer the lads on because it is a fantastic game to have at Wembley. It will be a high standard of football and it should be a great occasion.

"The aim is to beat Portugal on Friday and knock one of the big nations out of the tournament all together. We could try and get a point, but I don't think that is the way the gaffer wants us to play.

"He wants us to win every game we are involved in and the lads have been fantastic since I have been involved. The way he wants us to play is brilliant and I think we have got a great chance of winning it next year and hopefully I can be a part of it."
