Paul Gascoigne’s Sensational Euro 96 Highlights For England Have Gone Viral
An incredible compilation of England legend Paul Gascoigne’s performances at Euro 96 has gone viral and he’s still the Three Lions’ greatest player.
Gascoigne was loved by fans across the country and he had a chance to strut his stuff on home soil during the tournament.
Wembley crowds were left stunned by Gazza’s raw talent against some of Europe’s elite defences.
Phil Foden brought me here…
England made it all the way to the semi-finals that summer and Geordie hero Gascoigne never looked like breaking a sweat.
He danced around the pitch with a young Alan Shearer ahead of him, who won the Golden Boot that summer thanks to Gascoigne.
Backheels, rabonas, you name it, he did it. It’s like watching someone play down the park, not at a major European Championship.
He was slightly past his peak at 29-years-old and it ended up being his final international tournament.
Gascoigne’s performances for the national team have seen fans searching for the ‘next Gazza’ in the current generation of stars.
Ahead of England’s first Group D game against Croatia on Sunday, he decided to change up his look in a major way.
Foden’s barber posted the final results for fans on Instagram and everyone made the same comparison.
When asked about the change in a press conference, Foden said: “I’ve had the same haircut for ages now. I thought I’d try something new.
“I woke up this morning with a lot of comparisons to Gazza and Eminem, it was my own thing and people have turned it into something else.”
