BIRMINGHAM, England — Bradford became the first fourth-tier club to reach an English final in more than 50 years on Tuesday after it knocked Aston Villa out of the League Cup semifinals.
Bradford lost the second leg 2-1 but advanced 4-3 on aggregate against the Premier League club.
Not since Rochdale in 1962 has a fourth-division reached the final.
Bradford, whose squad was assembled for barely $12,000, will play Chelsea or Swansea in the Wembley Stadium final.
Swansea holds a 2-0 lead over Chelsea heading into Wednesday’s second leg.
