Match No. 722 - Saturday, 8th June 1996, 3:00pm

  • Assist: Paul Ince. "Paul Gascoigne...slipped a neat ball to Ince, who in turn tucked a pass inside Yvan Quentin to Shearer, who profited from the linesman's judgement that he was level with the last defender. Gleefully approaching the right-angle of the six-yard area, he drove the ball home off Pascolo's near post." Alan Shearer6th of 30 goals. , 23'
