Ledley King won't forget his first FA Cup campaign in a hurry. <P class=MsoNormal>First the late win at Leyton Orient, then the remarkable comeback at Charlton and the comfortable victory against Stockport and now the biggest game of his short career at West Ham on Sunday. <P class=MsoNormal>The 20-year-old said: "It's my first season in the FA Cup and I'm finding out all about it. <P class=MsoNormal>"One thing I have found is that you are never beaten until the final whistle in the FA Cup and we proved that at Charlton. That was a typical cup tie and I was pleased to be involved in it. <P class=MsoNormal>"This is certainly the biggest game I've been involved in, the quarter-finals of the FA Cup and I'm forward to it. <P class=MsoNormal>"We're feeling confident, especially in the cup and we know anything can happen. We played at West Ham recently and played all right there so we're confident of doing that again." <P class=MsoNormal>King, a regular in the side since November, is particularly looking forward to the midfield battle against West Ham's England trio of Frank Lampard, Joe Cole and Michael Carrick. <P class=MsoNormal>He added: "I've grown up playing against the likes of<SPAN style="mso-spacerun: yes">&nbsp&#59; </SPAN>Joe and Michael and have played in the Under-21s with Frank. <P class=MsoNormal>"In fact, I had a little chat with Frank the day before the quarter-final draw and we said that we would play each other. He said they wouldn't have a problem with us but I told him otherwise! <P class=MsoNormal>"Of course I would love to follow in their footsteps into the full England set up and they have proved it can be done having come up through the ranks. <P class=MsoNormal>"Hopefully, with a few more games and couple more seasons under my belt, who knows?" <P class=MsoNormal>We are 2/1 to win in 90 minutes on Sunday with King 25/1 to score the opening goal - <A href="" target=_new>click here for details. </A><P class=MsoNormal><I>Listen to what&nbsp&#59;Ledley had to say by clicking <A href="">here</A> </I><I></I><P class=MsoNormal><I>By Paul Miles <P class=MsoNormal>&nbsp&#59;<?xml:namespace prefix = o ns = "urn:schemas-microsoft-com:office:office" /><o:p></o:p></I>
