Watford 3-2 Wolves: Troy Deeney mocks ‘loser’ Raul Jimenez over FA Cup semi-final mask celebration

Troy Deeney slammed Wolves’ Raul Jimenez and mocked the ‘loser’ over his mask celebration in Watford’s dramatic FA Cup semi-final win at Wembley.

Jimenez, the forward, pulled on a wrestling-style mask to celebrate his 62nd-minute goal, which put Wolves 2-0 up with less than half-an-hour remaining.

Though joked about at the time, Jimenez’s decision to wear the mask was widely mocked after the end of the match, as Watford fought back to win 3-2 after extra time.

Jimenez, who last week completed a permanent move to Wolves, will forever be remembered for celebrating with the mask in a match the Molineux club went on to lose, and Deeney called him a ‘loser’ when interviewed after full-time.

After watching a replay of the celebration, Deeney said: “I’m glad he put that mask on – he could wear it out now as well, now he’s a loser. So, enjoy the mask – we got the victory.”
