England 2 v Scotland 0 – Euro 1996
The oldest rivalry in international football, a tournament on home soil, and a real sense of expectation all added to the tension on the 15th June 1996.
When Alan Shearer nodded England ahead from a very young looking Gary Neville’s cross early in the second half it looked like plain sailing for the Three Lions, but when have things ever been that easy…?
What followed was pure drama, and the reason why we call it the beautiful game, this game had everything.
A missed Scotland penalty, an iconic goal celebration which was preceded by a piece of sublime skill.
After Gazza’s magic, it was most definitely coming home!
