A goal from Gerard Deulofeu in overtime qualified Watford for the second final of the English Cup in its history. The team that trains the Spanish also Javi Gracia, defeated Wolverhampton (3-2) and will play the finale of the FA Cup against Manchester City.
It is the second time in history that the Watford reaches a final of the English Cup, the most important game of the year. You have to go back 35 years back in time to be in the first one. It was the golden age of Watford, which went from the Fourth Division to the First – then there was no Premier – by the hand of Elton John and Graham Taylor. The singer, obsessed with football, came to the presidency of the club in 1976, when the team was in the English last division. A year later he signed Taylor and together they managed to take him to the top flight and to the Cup final.
Elton John continues to have weight in the club. Now he is honorary president and the current president, Scott Duxbury, confesses that he is aware of the day to day of the club. He even recommends signings. He has not clarified if Gerard Deulofeu is one of them, but the Spanish international has now a place in the history of Watford with Elton John and Graham Taylor. He entered the second half when Wolverhampton won 2-0. He started the comeback, equalized Deeney penalty in the added time and finished the victory in extra time. Grace and he are the new historical couple of the Watford.
