Gerard Deulofeu scored a superb lob during Watford and Wolves' FA Cup semi-final

Watford v Wolverhampton Wanderers - FA Cup Semi Final

Watford and Wolverhampton Wanderers contested the second FA Cup semi-final at Wembley this weekend.

The focus has largely been on Manchester City in England's oldest competition, with Pep Guardiola's men fighting for the quadruple and proving the last top six club in the running.

They dispatched Brighton and Hove Albion thanks to a goal from Gabriel Jesus, booking their place in the final, but there was far more entertainment in Sunday's clash.

Wolves fired themselves into the lead thanks to a header from Matt Doherty and looked to have ended the game when Raul Jimenez delivered his latest brilliant goal.

However, Watford weren't willing to go down without a fight and had everybody biting their nails in Wembley when Gerard Deulofeu produced a moment of pure quality.

Deulofeu's brilliant chipped goal

The former Barcelona man can prove incredibly frustrating at times, but is never far away from producing something that reminds you why he played with Lionel Messi and co.

That was certainly the case when he scored a superb lobbed goal under the Wembley arch, floating a delightful scooped finish over the head of John Ruddy and into the net.

It's one of the finest goals you'll see in the FA Cup this season and the incredible finish can be seen down below:

Troy Deeny levels the scores

What's more, the strike would prove to be crucial with Watford going on to earn themselves a last minute penalty to add further drama to the occasion.

Troy Deeney assumed responsibility and in arguably the biggest moment of his entire career, thumped the ball past Ruddy and send the game to extra-time.

Deulofeu then continued his own sensational performance, completing the Watford comeback with a delightful finish into the bottom right corner.

Ivan Cavaleiro had a brilliant opportunity to conjure a Wolves response and force a penalty shootout but fluffed his lines, allowing the Hornets to clear

Watford held on until the final whistle and booked their place in the final, where they will lock horns with City and have the opportunity to end their quadruple dreams.
