Portsmouth’s Cameron McGeehan has stated that he hopes to get the chance to play at Wembley in the EFL Trophy final.
Kenny Jackett’s side managed to beat Scunthorpe in the quarter-finals on Tuesday night, and now they are just one match away from returning to England’s national stadium.
McGeehan managed to net his first goal for the club in the victory, and will hope to be given the chance to do the same thing at Wembley.
Last season, Portsmouth won the competition and over 40,000 Pompey fans descended into London to watch the side win the trophy.
McGeehan has stated that he hopes the same thing can happen once more, and he’s determined to get there due to never having the opportunity play at Wembley.
Speaking to the Portsmouth News, McGeehan said: “I’ve never played at Wembley before and it’s always a good day out – especially when you have got fans like this who are going to pack out the stadium.
“I’d obviously love to be part of that and it’d be massive. Hopefully we can keep going well.”

It would be incredible if Portsmouth managed to win it twice in two years and really show that on their day they’re one of the best sides in the division.
They had to overcome a tough test last night as Scunthorpe made it very difficult for the south-coast side.
They are now just one game away from a potential trip to Wembley and the buzz that a day like that could create around the club, could be huge in terms of lifting their confidence for the run-in.
Now, they must get back to focusing on the league, as they sit just outside the play-offs but only on goal difference.
