  • Assist: Gary Neville. "Beckham released Hinchcliffe, whose curling cross reached Gary Neville. He picked out the unmarked Barmby, who nonchalantly volleyed home." Nicky Barmby3rd of 4 goals, 23'
  • Assist: Paul Ince. "Two minutes later Ince drove into the Moldovan defence, exchanged passes with Barmby and toe-poked the ball to Gascoigne, who looped a clever header over Romanencu." Paul Gascoigne9th of 10 goals, 25'
  • Assist: Gary Neville. Neville, in an advanced position on the edge of the area, nods the ball square the the advancing Shearer. Shearer is slow to react and the covering defender has no problem getting to the ball first but he makes a hash of it and loops the ball up for Shearer to beat the keeper with an outstretch right boot. Alan Shearer11th of 30 goals, 61'
