Wigan Athletic manager Roberto Martinez has described his side's FA Cup semi-final victory over Millwall as a "huge achievement" for the club.

Shaun Maloney and Callum McManaman both scored at Wembley Stadium on Saturday as the Latics defeated their Championship opponents 2-0 to reach their first final in the competition.

"It does not come any bigger than this," Martinez told BBC Sport. "It is a huge achievement for everyone connected to the club.

"The pressure was on the players but they were magnificent today. They lived the dream for Wigan."

Martinez's team will return to Wembley on May 11 to meet either Manchester City or defending champions Chelsea in the FA Cup final.
