Jeremie Aliadiere is determined to help Middlesbrough reach this season's FA Cup final at Wembley.
Boro tackle Premier League rivals Everton at Goodison Park in the quarter-finals of the FA Cup on Sunday.
Aliadiere previously missed out on the competition's showpiece at Cardiff during his days at Arsenal after he failed to land a place in the squad.
The disappointment still remains fresh in Aliadiere's mind, but the Frenchman is eager to channel his anguish into ensuring Boro battle to glory this campaign.
He told The Sun: "I played for Arsenal in the semi against Blackburn at Cardiff but I was not involved in the final. It was hard to take.
"I thought I was going to get the chance. But I was at Arsenal. They have big players... what can you say? I was disappointed but there was nothing I could do.
"I was quite young and I was happy to be there to see the game. And it was nice to have been involved in most of the previous rounds.
"I'm 25 now and if that happened to me now I would be upset, angry. But it is all about experience. It would be great to go there.
"I have never played at Wembley, so being just one game away means you know you are about to play in a big game."
