Watford’s Odion Ighalo Crashes Out of the FA Cup


Super Eagles striker Odion Ighalo will not have the privilege of winning a laurel this season as Watford lost 2-1 to Crystal Palace in Sunday’s FA Cup semifinal at Wembley Stadium.

Palace proved that they are the better team as they broke the deadlock in the sixth minute through DR Congo striker, Yannick Bolasie before Troy Deeney leveled the score in the 55th minute to keep the team’s hope alive.

Despite Ighalo featuring for the entire duration of the match, it was Crystal Palace’s Connor Wickham who stole the headline as he netted the winning goal in the 61st minute to send Palace to the final of the FA Cup.

The team will now face Manchester United who defeated Everton 2-1 in Saturday’s first semifinal.

Ighalo will have to wait till next season to have another chance of winning any title with Watford.
