Swansea City kick off against Bradford City in the final of the Capital One Cup at Wembley at 4pm.

It is Swansea's first major cup final in the club's 100-year history, and they are 90 minutes - plus extra time and penalties if required - away from winning their first major cup, and qualifying for European football next season.

League Two side Bradford also have history on their minds. They have knocked out three Premier League teams already, and become the first team from the fourth tier to play in a major Wembley final.

The ITV Sport website has live updates on the action.

But for Ryan,12, who won a gold medal in table tennis at last year's British Transplant Games after his dad donated him a kidney, today will be the first time he has led his City heroes out.

The club received special permission from the Football League to have two mascots.
