“Is Gascoigne going to have a crack? He is you know, oh I say!”
Those were the famous words of former BBC commentator Barry Davies just before Paul Gascoigne thumped home that sensational free-kick into the top corner past David Seaman during Tottenham’s 1991 FA Cup semi-final victory over rivals Arsenal at Wembley.
A Gary Lineker brace, either side of Alan Smith’s first-half goal took saw Spurs progress to the final where they beat Nottingham Forest 2-1 to claim their eighth and last FA Cup title.
But the day belonged to Gazza, and you can his memorable strike in the video below.
