Tottenham have drawn Wycombe Wanderers in the FA Cup.
Akinfenwa, 34, is a cult figure in lower league football and is known as the strongest player in the Football League due to his bulky physique.

He has played against Spurs midfielder Dele Alli before, when he was at MK Dons, and knows all about how talented the England international is.
Last week after watching Alli put Chelsea to the sword, Akinfenwa remarked that he remembers not being able to get near the midfielder.
2yrs ago I could not get near Dele Ali on the pitch & now the best of the best are feeling my pain there is quality in the lower leagues.— daRealAAkinfenwa (@daRealAkinfenwa) January 4, 2017
He was quickly reminded of this last night after Wycombe Wanderers landed an away tie at White Hart Lane in the FA Cup fourth round. (Full draw here, via BBC).
This time Akinfenwa says he has learned his lesson and will be keeping clear of Alli, if he is playing of course.
I've learnt my lesson from our 1st meeting, gonna let our younger faster players chase him this time https://t.co/6L1Y95OuKz— daRealAAkinfenwa (@daRealAkinfenwa) January 9, 2017
Wycombe are currently in fifth place in the League Two table and are unbeaten in their last 10 matches. It will be a tall order to continue that against Spurs. Akinfenwa has netted six times this season and is their second highest scorer.
