Gomes dreaming of 'special' end to Watford career
Heurelho Gomes feels winning the FA Cup and qualifying for Europe would be a 'special' way to end his time at Watford.
The former Brazil international goalkeeper is planning to retire at the end of the season after spending the last five years with the Hornets.
Gomes has largely played second fiddle to Ben Foster at Vicarage Road this season, although he has been a regular in their FA Cup team, featuring in their victories over Woking, Newcastle and Queens Park Rangers.
Javi Gracia's side will now play host to Premier League rivals Crystal Palace in the quarter-finals on Saturday and Gomes is once again expected to be between the sticks.
Watford are also pushing for a top-seven finish in the Premier League and Gomes admits winning the FA Cup and qualifying for Europe would be a dream way to end his career.
"It's been an amazing five years, I never set targets because that limits where you can go," Gomes told the club's official programme.
"But if you ask me what we can achieve, we are still in a cup competition and we have the chance to qualify for Europe, and I think that would be more than anybody thought possible at the beginning of the season.
"If we could finish in this way it would be very special."
