Crystal Palace into promotion playoff with Watford
LONDON (AP) — Crystal Palace will play Watford in the playoff for the final Premier League promotion spot at Wembley Stadium on May 27 after winning 2-0 at Brighton on Monday night in the second leg of their playoff semifinal.
After a 0-0 tie in the first leg, Palace advanced on a pair of second-half goals by Manchester United-bound Wilfried Zaha. The 20-year-old forward, who has made one appearance for England’s national team, scored in the 69th and 88th minutes.
Zaha says “I’m just glad, we are going to Wembley, no words can express how I feel. I have played at Palace for 10 years, so doing this for Palace is perfect, for when I leave.”
