  • Assist: Gary Neville. "...a patient 13 pass move unlocked Scotland seven minutes into the half. It ended with Darren Anderton and Ince finding McManaman on the right, he fed the outstanding Gary Neville, whose cross was forcefully met by the resurgent Alan Shearer." Alan Shearer7th of 30 goals, 53' (52:54)

      38' Spencer is disposed by Ince, a little unfairly according to the Scotsman who then puts in two pay back tackles on Ince. The referee let's both go as England have the advantage but comes back to book Spencer after the attack fizzles out.

Notes

  • Missed Penalty: McAllisterAdams brings down Durie in the area in the 77th minute. McAllister hits the penalty to Seaman's right who guesses correctly and elbows it away for a corner. Exactly 60 seconds later Gascoigne makes it two nil.
  • Player Injury: DurieDurie is caught by a Southgate's elbow when they both jump for a ball in the 35th minute. Durie is cut above his left eye and the game stops for a couple of minutes whilst he is bandaged up, but he is OK to continue.
  • Player Injury: RedknappIn the 82nd minute Redknapp twists his ankle landing after trying to head a lofted ball. Sadly, it rules him out of the rest of the tournament. He is replaced by Campbell.
