Match No. 718 - Wednesday, 27th March 1996

  • Assist: Teddy Sheringham. "Sheringham took possession just inside the Bulgarian half. He saw Ferdinand steaming down the centre and hit a marvellous, chipped through ball. Ferdinand's first touch took the ball on his chest and, after brushing aside the challenge of Trifon Ivanov, the second slipped it under the body of Mikhailov." Les Ferdinand4th of 5 goals, 7' (06:17)
