Carvahal 'has a dream' as Swansea make Cup last eight

Carlos Carvalhal has Swansea dreaming of Wembley

Wednesday failed to reach the quarter-finals of the competition for the first time since 1997 after sliding to a 2-0 defeat at Swansea City last night.

Sheffield Wednesday came up short against Swansea City.

Swansea will now face either Tottenham or Rochdale in the last-eight of England's oldest cup competition.

"I am very happy and very proud of my players", Carvalhal added.

Under Texas law, athletes are required to compete against other athletes who have the same gender on their birth certificates. In the past, Beggs has publicly said he would love to wrestle boys-and would do so, if not for the state athletic policy.

In the opposing dugout for Swansea was former Wednesday manager Carlos Carvalhal, who was sacked by the Owls in December after a poor start to the season.

This was their sixth successive home win in all competitions, something they have not managed since 2007 and a promotion-winning season under Roberto Martinez.

'But after that people adapted to it and I think there are a lot of positives in the decisions.

'We moved the training to where the grass is better and we don't have any problem to prepare the game, ' Carvalhal said.

As a result of the impasse, both countries later agreed that getting the leaders together at the White House wasn't a good idea. The leaders did meet once, on the sidelines of the G20 summit of major economies in Hamburg, Germany, last July.

"1964 is a long time ago, I know because I was born in '65", Swansea's Portuguese manager Carvalhal told the BBC. "But I thought we had more opportunities in this game". They put three attackers on and played some long balls, but we defended very well.

Kristoffer Nordfeldt parried Jacob Butterfield's swerving shot from outside the area just before the half hour and the Swansea keeper reacted sharply to keep out Jordan Rhodes' diving header from Lucas Joao's cross.

But Carvalhal's response was to throw on Martin Olsson and Jordan Ayew at halftime, in place of Ki and the ineffective Wayne Routledge - and ten minutes after the break, it paid dividends.

Now that the Owls have exited the Emirates FA Cup, they will be able to focus their attentions on surviving relegation from the Sky Bet Championship. "In the second half we did not make the pressure we like to do, Swansea got the goal and we could not come back in the game".

Three players who should definitely start for Newcastle against Bournemouth
Bournemouth and Newcastle are still in relegation danger, but Kevin Hatchard doesn't expect them to be too cautious this weekend. Bournemouth certainly have reason to think they can produce a much better display on Saturday.
