A simply breathtaking, exhilarating 90 minutes of Three Lions football, blowing the highly rated star-studded Dutch away 4-1 in one of the most iconic displays of all time at Wembley. The finishing and link-up play of Shearer and Sheringham was a joy to behold, Gazza sprinkling the magic in the midfield and Southgate and Adams keeping it tight at the back with Seaman in goal, what a team. Almost perfect, just one thing missing, the sleeve patches.
A mix-up in the kit room meant that England played this one match at the tournament without the Euro 96 and UEFA Fair Play sleeve patches. Platt came on as a 68th minute substitute for Paul Ince. The Arsenal star played the full match against Spain and Germany, scoring England's second spotkick in both shoot-outs before retiring after the tournament with 62 caps and 27 three lions goals to his name.
