Gerard Deulofeu inspired a thrilling comeback against Wolverhampton Wanderers to secure a 3-2 victory after extra-time and send Watford Fc into the FA Cup final for the second time in history.

An incredible match at Wembley began with Matt Doherty and Raul Jimenez putting Wolves into a commanding lead, with Nuno Espirito Santo’s side attempting to grind out the victory from thereon.

But Javi Gracia’s decision to introduce Deulofeu spurred Watford to a historic fightback.

The former Barcelona winger clipped an exceptional curved goal into the top-corner to peg one back before Troy Deeney levelled the game with 15 seconds to go from the penalty spot, after a careless tackle from Leander Dendoncker.

Deulofeu then completed his iconic cameo after racing through on goal to seal victory in one of the competition’s great games in recent memory.
