Leander Dendoncker has spoken about his regret over Wolves’ FA Cup semi-final defeat in 2019.
That April, Watford beat Wolves 3-2 at Wembley, coming from 2-0 down to win.
In an interview with the club website, Dendoncker was asked which game from his career he most wishes ended differently.
He said: “The FA Cup semi-final against Watford at Wembley or the World Cup against France.
“But I wasn’t playing in that one (at the World Cup), so I’ll say Watford.
Dendoncker also shared his frustration at another occasion he felt wrong when asked which rule in football he would change.
“The handball rule because it has screwed us a lot in the past, including me at Leicester.”
That semi defeat was painful and Dendoncker still puts it on a par with his World Cup heartbreak.
Manchester City beat Watford 6-0 in the final and Pep Guardiola’s side would have been favourites for the final.
But on the day, anything could have happened and it is a regret that Nuno Espirito Santo era did not herald an FA or EFL Cup.
