Lot Essay

The above shirt was worn by Paul Gascoigne in the England v. West Germany World Cup Semi-Final match in Turin on 4th July 1990. After defeating Belgium and Cameroon in the previous knock-out rounds, England faced West Germany for a place in the World Cup Final.

It was West Germany who took the lead after a first half of few chances, when Paul Parker deflected a Brehme free-kick which dipped agonizingly beyond Shilton's reach into the England net. The Manchester United full-back made amends though with ten minutes remaining, sweeping in a long ball which perplexed three Germany defenders, allowing Lineker to slip through with easeful control and a clinical finish.

England were performing heroics, becoming the first side in a World Cup to play extra time in three successive matches. Waddle and Buchwald hit the woodwork for each side and Platt had a goal ruled out for offside. However the emotional highpoint came when Gascoigne, who had already received a yellow card against Belgium, received his second booking of the tournament for a mistimed challenge on Berthold. The tears welled in his eyes as he realized he would miss the Final should England make it through.

After extra-time, the match went to penalties. With Chris Waddle and Stuart Pearce both missing their penalties, West Germany won 4-3. England went on to play Itlay for third-place position. Without the suspended Paul Gascoigne, England lost 2-1.
