Saturday 18th May
When Watford meets Manchester City on Saturday night, there will be no more telling story than his captain and striker Troy Deeney, who will present his colleagues to Prince William after a life of suffering, imprisonment and education with his drug dealer father.
Watford was not known for the podiums, and all he achieved during his career was to reach the final in 1983-1984, to be the first Manchester City to face the team after the absence of 35 years of the final of any cup in England.
Troy Dieni lived a great tragedy since childhood, and did not stop until after the beginning of his career with football. At the age of 10 he was attacked by his mother and his father. His family remained under surveillance after that incident. One year later the mother separated from the father.
But the father's profession was the drug trade in the surrounding area. His father was diagnosed with cancer in 2012 and died several months later, but the timing was another.
While playing at Watford in June 2012, the player was convicted of assaulting a person in the Cape area during an argument between the two sides. He was sentenced to 10 months' imprisonment, but was released after only 3 months for good behavior, being the first time he broke the law.
He left his studies at the age of 14 and returned to it after a year, he remained without a high school certificate until his release in 2012, before getting the certificate in some sciences.
Donnie's miserable life prevented him from winning football. He was able to play 500 professional league games, the fourth in England, even Premier League.
The 30-year-old has scored 150 goals, 37 of them in the English Premier League, and has made 66 goals in all competitions.
Can Dennie make history and write his name among those who have fought difficult circumstances and raise the first Cup in the history of Watford to the team that monopolized the local England tournaments this season?
