Deeney hails ‘special’ Watford stunning FA Cup semi-final comeback

Troy Deeney has hailed Watford as ‘special’ after they reached the FA Cup final with a 3-2 comeback win over Wolves at Wembley.

Goals from Matt Doherty and Raul Jimenez had put Wolves in control of the semi-final, before substitute Gerard Deulofeu’s stunning finish and Deeney’s stoppage time penalty forced extra time.

Deulofeu would score the winner during the extra period, sending Watford through to their first FA Cup final since 1984.

Forward Deeney was full of praise for his side following the win, labelling the playing group as ‘special’.

“I’ve said on many occasions that this team has something special,” Deeney told the BBC.

”We’re not the most talented, we’re not all that, but the hard work and desire at 2-0 down – many teams would’ve called it a day but we kept fighting and kept going and brought the little man on, who produced a bit of magic.

“We’ve got room to grow, there’s not a ceiling on us yet as a team. For a club of this size, let’s enjoy this moment.

“Manchester City are a formidable team, probably the best team in Europe, but it’s a one-off game and we need to come in with belief and know that this hard work can get us a long way.”
