Watford's politicians have offered their congratulations to the Hornets after their stunning 3-2 turnaround in the FA Cup Semi-Final yesterday.

Watford were 2-0 behind to Wolves at Wembley after 62 minutes, but substitute Gerard Deulofeu produced a chip out of almost nowhere to put Watford back in the game in the 79th minute.

Then in the second minute of injury time captain Troy Deeney hammered home a penalty after being brought down by Leander Dendoncker, taking the match into extra time.

Just before the second half of extra time, Deulofeu struck again to see Hornets on their way to their second ever FA Cup Final.

Watford Mayor Peter Taylor was at the match.

In a tweet, he joked that those pessimistic fans who left when Hornets were 2-0 down would pay for their fickleness.

He said: "Yesterday was an absolutely magnificent day for the whole town.

"Our fans and our players kept going throughout and just never gave up.

"It’s a brilliant thing for Watford to be in an FA Cup Final and I’m sure it will bring everyone together. I am a very proud Mayor!"

Watford will go on to play Manchester City in the final at Wembley on May 18.

Watford MP Richard Harrington believes the team have the character to go on and win the competition.

He said: “It was an amazing game to watch. People talk about the magic of the FA Cup and yesterday’s game showed why.

"To come back from 2-0 down with just over ten minutes to go shows excellent team spirit!

"If we can produce another performance like yesterday's, I think we have an excellent chance against City in the final!”
