#OTD – Gazza scores one of the greatest goals in Spurs’ history

On this day, 29 years ago, Paul Gascoigne, Gazza, scored one of the greatest goals in Spurs’ history.

On 14th April 1990, Gascoigne’s free-kick was the opening goal in a 3-1 FA Cup semi final win over Arsenal. His six goals in the competition that year helped Tottenham to a FA Cup win – to date, our last.

It would prove to be his last great act in a Spurs shirt after injuring himself just 15 minutes into the Final. Gascoigne ruptured his cruciate ligaments with a terrible tackle on Nottingham Forest’s Gary Charles, an injury that kept him out for the entire 1991-92 season.

Spurs, under huge financial pressure, eventually sold him for £5.5 million to Lazio the following summer.
