Moises Caicedo has said Grimsby Town will give everything to beat Albion.

Moises Caicedo admits he’s dreaming of lifting the FA Cup in an Albion shirt, but knows that Sunday’s quarter-final opponents Grimsby Town cannot be underestimated.

Wins over Middlesbrough, Liverpool and Stoke City have earned us an Amex meeting with the Mariners for a spot in the semi-finals at Wembley.

But Grimsby have beaten a team in a higher division than them at every stage of the competition so far, including Premier League Southampton in their fifth-round tie.

“We are up against a team in the fourth division, but we know that it will be as difficult as any other game,” Moises said. “They will give everything so we have to have the same attitude and I am sure that we will.

FA Cup Highlights: Albion 2 Liverpool 1

“When I was a young boy I watched all the FA Cup games at home and now being so close to playing at Wembley is a dream come true for me.

“First of all we just have to focus on the game we need to win to get through.”

The 21-year-old has recently spoken of his Champions League ambitions with Albion, but says it would be a ‘dream to win the FA Cup with the club.’

“My dream would be just to play in the Champions League but it would be great to win the Europa League and a trophy with my country at some point in my career. I am working so hard and giving 100 per cent to win a lot of trophies at club level.”
