Udinese defender Ben Wilmot delighted for Watford teammates

Watford defender Ben Wilmot is delighted for his teammates after they reached the FA Cup final.

Wilmot is currently on-loan at Udinese.

The Serie A side beat Empoli on Sunday before 19-year-old Wilmot raced inside to watch Watford defeat Wolves at Wembley and seal their spot in the FA Cup final.

He told the Daily Mail, "We had a game. We won 3-2 with 10 men. Then I just literally ran inside and got it up on my phone.

"It was two minutes into the game so I sat and watched the first half in the changing room. Then I raced home at half time and watched the second half from home.

"I was buzzing. I was like a fan watching the game. It's disappointing I'm not there to celebrate with the team but it's good to know I played my part."
