Paul Gascoigne Says Sorry to Scotland and Colin Hendry For Euro 96 Goal

Paul Gascoigne Says Sorry to Scotland and Colin Hendry For Euro 96 Goal

Paul Gascoigne has given a tongue in cheek apology to Scotland and Colin Hendry for his famous Euro 96 goal.

The Three Lions great is excited, just like the rest of us, for Friday’s World Cup qualifier between the home nations at Wembley.

But he’ll no doubt be hoping that one of the English players can produce a genius piece of skill to decide the game like he did 20 years ago.

In case you’ve forgotten all about that goal (how could you, of course?) here it is:

One man who will never forget the goal is former Scotland centre back Hendry, who was on the receiving end of the deft Gazza chip before the finish.

Ahead of the game on Friday, Gascoigne tweeted that he was looking forward to it – before apologising to both Scotland and Hendry:

As long as Wayne Rooney or another of the English stars don’t produce a goal like that on Friday night, we’ll be ok.
