Wolves boss Nuno: Let’s use pain to reach another semi-final

Nuno Espirito Santo called on Wolves to use the pain and disappointment of their FA Cup heartbreak to reach another semi-final – and win it. Wolves lost 3-2 to Watford after extra time, missing out on a first final in the competition since 1960 after leading 2-1 in normal time, only for Troy Deeney’s penalty to earn the Hornets a lifeline, then winning through Gerard Deulofeu’s second goal. Matt Doherty’s header (37) and a smart turn and volley from Raul Jimenez had put Wolves 2-0 up by the 63rd minute only for substitute Deulofeu to halve the deficit 11 minutes…

Raul is ‘a loser’ for wearing mask – Deeney

Troy Deeney mocked Wolves top scorer Raul Jimenez as a ‘loser’ for donning the mask given to him after he scored. Watford captain Deeney won and scored the penalty that forced extra-time either side of Gerard Deulofeu’s double that clinched their 3-2 win and a final against Manchester City next month. Jimenez donned a wrestling mask given to him by fellow Mexican and WWE star Sin Cara after putting Wolves 2-0 up after 63 minutes at Wembley. But Deeney and Watford had the last laugh and the former Walsall striker said: “I genuinely didn’t see that until just now. “I’m…

Jota: ‘Wolves had final place in our hands’

Diogo Jota admitted Wolves had the FA Cup final in their hands only to let it slip through their grasp as they fell to Watford in the semi-final. Wolves were 2-0 up through Matt Doherty and Raul Jimenez and seemingly cruising towards their first final since 1960, only for substitute Gerard Deulofeu to score twice, sandwiching Troy Deeney’s penalty which forced extra-time. “We had the game in our hands, and had the chance to go to the final in our hands, but we lost it in the last minutes. So the feeling is not good,” said Jota. The Portuguese forward…

‘It was a stupid foul’ – Dendoncker admits mistake that cost Wolves

Leander Dendoncker admitted he committed a ‘stupid foul’ as Wolves suffered FA Cup semi-final heartbreak against Watford. The Belgium international conceded the last-gasp penalty for a foul on Troy Deeney scored by the Watford captain to make it 2-2 to force extra-time. Substitute Gerard Deulofeu’s winner clinched the Hornets’ place in the final against Manchester City. “I didn’t see him coming. I think you can say it was a stupid foul,” confessed Dendoncker. “It was the last seconds of the game and I think I shouldn’t have touched him but it was too late. “At first I didn’t think it…

Deulofeu’s double does for Wolves in Cup exit

Wolves 2 Watford 3 Wolves broke the hearts of their supporters as they threw away a two-goal lead to lose 3-2 after extra-time to Watford with substitute Gerard Deulofeu’s brace sending the Hornets into the FA Cup final. Matt Doherty’s 37th-minute header gave Nuno Espirito Santo’s side the lead before Raul Jimenez made it 2-0 with a smart volley on 63. But Deulofeu, who replaced Will Hughes three minutes later, put Watford back into the game with an outrageous flicked chip before captain Troy Deeney sent the tie into extra-time with a penalty with virtually the last kick. Deulofeu calmly…
