DANNY Shittu admitted he was in dreamland after sending Millwall to Wembley with the winning goal in their FA Cup quarter-final replay against Blackburn Rovers.
Shittu headed in Chris Taylor's first-half corner at Ewood Park as the Lions booked a last-four date with Wigan Athletic at the national stadium.
"Words can't really describe how I'm feeling," the 32-year-old told NewsAtDen. "Obviously we came here wanting to get the win but for me to have scored the goal is amazing.
"I am delighted for myself, the gaffer, the backroom staff, the players and the fans – all of those that came up to Blackburn and those who were supporting us back at home.
"I am just so proud that we have achieved what we have. It is a dream for me to captain Millwall and lead my teammates out at Wembley."
Shittu believes Millwall have secured the kindest possible draw in the semi-finals, avoiding top-flight giants Manchester United, Manchester City and Chelsea, and is confident of reaching the final.
A win against Roberto Martinez's side could also see the Lions playing Europa League football next year and Shittu admits that prospect is beyond his wildest dreams.
"Right now we would rather play Wigan than one of the other three," he said. "They are a good side and did well to beat Everton in the quarter-finals but anything can happen at Wembley on the day.
"To know that there's a possibility of Millwall playing in Europe next season is crazy. If you had said that at the beginning of the season, people would be laughing the way we are now."
Millwall were roared on by 574 travelling supporters at Ewood Park and Shittu paid tribute to their dedication – and was delighted to reward them with the winner.
"We're delighted to make the fans happy – the ones that pay to come and support us," he said. "A lot of people had to finish work early or not go in at all to get to Blackburn.
"They were so loud. They only had a couple of days to plan getting here so it means a lot for me to score right in front of them."
