WEMBLEY Stadium has always been a special place for footballers across the globe and playing there this weekend would mean the world to Benji Buchel.

If the goalkeeper remains in the Oxford United side, he would become the first professional from Liechtenstein to play at the home of football.

The national team were drawn in the same group as England for the 2004 European Championship qualifiers, but their 2-0 defeat came while Wembley was being rebuilt, so was instead staged at Old Trafford.

It would be a big moment for Buchel, whose parents are flying in to watch the Johnstone’s Paint Trophy final.

He said: “It would be amazing, it’s always nice to be the first one.

“Everyone all over Europe and all over the world knows the stadium.

“It would be a great honour to play there and I’m looking forward to it.

“My parents always supported me when I was a kid coming through. I’m sure they are really proud.”

The JPT played an important role in Buchel’s season.

He played in four of the five games, beginning with his United debut in the eagerly-anticipated second round derby with Swindon Town.

While the 2-0 win was an excellent night for the side it did little to help Buchel impress, with the Robins failing to register a shot on target.

“It was a good first game, atmosphere-wise, but I didn’t have much to do,” he said.

“I was just happy to get the first game under my belt and I went on a good run after that.

“Hopefully it won’t be the last time I have a chance of playing at Wembley, but you never know.”
