Robbie Keane has summed up the lads' desire to win Sunday's Carling Cup Final against Chelsea at Wembley.
"The players are desperate to win things and we’ll go out there determined to do it," he insisted at Friday's media briefing at Spurs Lodge. "Nothing is worse than getting beat and I can imagine you can times that by 100 in a final. No-one wants that.

"With the squad and players we have, we have to be aiming to get to finals and I believe in the next few years you’ll see further improvement and hope this is a step in the right direction."

Born and raised in Tallaght, south Dublin, this will be Robbie's first visit to Wembley and the realisation of a childhood dream. "I’ve driven past a few times and got lost, but that’s about it," he smiled. "I've never been there.

"It’s every kid's dream. When I was a kid we played the ‘Wembley’ game and I’ve always dreamt of playing there. Every kid growing up in the street dreams of Wembley and one day that you’ll play there and hopefully I’ll have the opportunity to do that on Sunday."
