Fabricio Coloccini has warned Tottenham Hotspur that Newcastle United are determined to win on Wednesday.
“For us it (reaching the final) is a dream, (it is) unbelievable,” The Chronicle quotes the defender as saying. “We need to think about the game in 90 minutes and try to beat them.
“For us it is very important. We’re thinking only about Tottenham for now. It’s very important for us, the city and the club. Hopefully we can do it.”
Both Newcastle and Tottenham are big clubs in England, but their respective trophy cabinets have not seen much incomings in recent years.
One suspects that on Wednesday Newcastle and Tottenham will go hammer and tongs at each other, and it promises to be a very competitive game.
Both Newcastle and Tottenham are likely to field strong line-ups, and this will certainly enhance the reputation of the League Cup and make the game that much better.
Tottenham need to win on Wednesday to build on the victory over Swansea City on Sunday, while Alan Pardew’s side will be looking to maintain their good performances of late.
