Match No. 731 - Saturday, 29th March 1997

  • Assist: Paul Ince. "Paul Ince went down because he fell over the unfortunate Pavel Pardo's back leg, which was bent under him and not moving. One looked, in vain, for Ince to own up. To be fair to him, and the Portuguese referee, it looked a penalty at first sight." Teddy Sheringham6th of 11 goals, 18' (pen)
