A historical game in itself for being the first FA Cup semi-final to be held at Wembley, the fixture certainly didn’t disappoint and showcased one of English footballs finest talents scoring one of the best goals ever seen at Wembley.
Arsenal were looking irrepressible in the league and were expected to see off the challenge from their North London rivals with some ease. But George Graham and co didn’t bank on Paul Gascoigne showing up.
His 35 yard free kick after just five minutes set the stage for Tottenham to go on and record a famous victory over the bitter enemy and will always be remembered by Spurs fans as one of the greatest games in their history.
They went on to win the cup that year but something tells me that this particular victory will be a lot more memorable. It was Arsenal, after all.
