Watford and Crystal Palace want to visit iconic English stadium Wembley, and for Daryl Janmaat this is a unique opportunity thanks to the FA Cup.

Watford and Crystal Palace will face off in the FA Cup Quarterfinals tomorrow in the afternoon.

The game will be played at Vicarage Road, but it’s just two wins away from the Final which will be played at iconic Wembley Stadium in London.

“It’s the first time I’ve got this far in the FA Cup and it’s a real opportunity to get to the semi-finals,” said Watford defender Daryl Janmaat to the club’s official website.

“It’s a tough game, but everyone wants to get to Wembley and it’s a great opportunity.”

“We will give everything,” he continued.

Watford has enjoyed a good run in the English Premier League table, as they are currently in the eight positions. Meanwhile, Crystal Palace is in 14th place.

“It’s going to be hard – Palace at home will be a battle because they’re a good team and Watford v Palace is always a close game – but we will have our chances and we have to try to take them,” said Janmaat.

“We played them twice this season and beat them twice, hopefully, we beat them again and go to Wembley. Then we’ll see what happens next.”

“It’s always nice as players and also for the fans when there is the possibility of an exciting end to the season,” he explained.

“Especially with the position we’re in at the moment – I think we can look forward to a nice last two or three months as we’re trying to achieve what we want to achieve.”

“It’s a really interesting time of the season and hopefully we can do something special. That’s our aim at the moment and we have to keep working hard for it until the last game of the season,” Janmaat concluded.
