“It would have been a great story if we had won the trophy but unfortunately this is not the end of the dream.

“But who knows? Maybe next year we’ll be here with Newcastle again, maybe I’ll play another one. You never know. Last week showed me once again that pretty much anything is possible in football, who knows?

“I don’t write anything, so I hope the story will have a very good ending one day.”

Karius, who joined the Magpies on a short-term deal in September and has since been extended until the end of the season, was a little off the first team when he arrived at St James’ Park.

But when Pope was sacked for acting outside his home zone in the 2-0 game last Saturday. Premier League Following the loss to Liverpool, Martin Dubravka threw the pecking order at this season’s competition with the cup draw for United and Karl Darlow coming out on loan.

“I didn’t pay much attention to everything that was going on.

“There is always pressure to perform, but I tried to enjoy it. It’s a cup final, Wembley – it doesn’t get any better than this.

“You have to enjoy these moments and absorb everything, and that’s what I tried to do.

“Five minutes in the first half cost us the game. In the second half, United defended very well, didn’t give us much opportunity. They brought the game home very well.”
