Stuckmann On FA Cup Dream Come True

12 February 2015

Before joining Preston North End, Stuckmann had two wishes upon starting his career in English football and one of those was to play in games such as Monday evening.

To play Championship football and be involved in FA Cup games against big teams were the No.12's aims, two things he hopes to achieve by the end of this season, starting with the FA Cup fifth round tie against Manchester United.

"My first aim was to go back to where I have been, that was in Germany the Championship level, and I still want to go back there with Preston and the other thing was to just FA Cup rounds, playing against the big teams. I think this is the first big game we've had since I've been here and obviously I'm looking forward to it.

"If you look at their line-up and we'll be playing against some really good players but I think if you play as a team, as we did against Sheffield United for example, then we've got a chance as well.

"Obviously if you're on the pitch you don't realise who you're playing against, it's more before and after the gamebut on the pitch I don't care who's not scoring against me!"
