‘You Must Always Believe’ Says Jubilant Huerelho Gomes
Watford goalkeeper Huerelho Gomes hailed the belief of his Watford side, as they battled back from 2-0 down to defeat Wolves 3-2 in Sunday’s FA Cup semi-final classic at Wembley.
Wolves were in control with a commanding two goal lead on 70 minutes at Wembley, before goals from Gerard Deulofeu and a stoppage time penalty from Troy Deeney took the game to extra time.
Deulofeu grabbed an extra time winner so Watford will now meet Manchester City in the final at Wembley- which is set to be Huerelho Gomes’ final game before retirement.
“It was amazing,” said Gomes. “It was like until 70 minutes Wolves would win, but this is football - you must always believe! If we did not have belief we don’t achieve and we believed until the last minute.
“We showed we didn’t put our heads down and we fought until the end.” The Brazilian reserved special praise for the two goalscorers.
“Troy can deal with any pressure, and once more he did that for us. He deserves it, and it is not easy to take a penalty like that. We are a team.
“The gaffer picks the team that is going to work. Geri was prepared to help the team from the bench. He changed the game, and that’s why we are in the final.”
