sbo222 Carlos Carvalhal has told his players to dream of Wembley after Swansea booked their place in the quarter-final of the FA Cup for the first time since 1964.
Second-half goals from Jordan Ayew and Nathan Dyer secured a 2-0 win over Sheffield Wednesday in their FA Cup fifth-round replay at the Liberty Stadium.
Swansea last graced the quarter-final of the competition 54 years ago, and Carvalhal pointed inside his jacket for inspiration ahead of a last-eight meeting against either Tottenham or Rochdale.
Asked if he would allow his players to dream of cup glory, the Swansea boss replied: "I have 'Carlos had a dream' written here in my jacket.
"All of us have dreams - the people who don't have dreams are not happy people I think.
"The main competition for us is the Premier League, but we will have a week to prepare for the quarter-final, which is important, and we are near [to the end of the competition] now.
"We have 90 minutes to try to get Wembley [for the semi-final] so let's see what happens.
"Sheffield Wednesday created problems for us in the first game and also again. But I thought we had more opportunities in this game. sbo222
"We needed a bit more intensity and a bit more speed in the second half, and that's why we put Jordan and Martin Olsson on at half-time. We felt after a couple of minutes that we could score and we did that."
Swansea's last FA Cup quarter-final came in 1964 when Bill Shankly's Liverpool were beaten 2-1 at Anfield, although the Swans eventually lost a Villa Park semi-final to Preston, ending their hopes of playing in a first FA Cup final.sbo222
