World Cup semi-final 1990
Turin, Italy
England v Germany, World Cup semi-final 1990
West Germany 1-1 England (aet)
West Germany win 4-3 on penalties

England remembers Italia 90 largely for a crying Paul Gascoigne, who lost control when he received a booking that would have ruled him out of the final, and the pain of penalties.

As is so often the case, the margin between success and failure proved so small - and it was Chris Waddle who found himself on the wrong side of the divide.

Waddle almost won the match when he hit the bar in extra-time but he was, instead, destined for heartbreak come the penalty shoot-out when he blazed over to hand West Germany victory, after Stuart Pearce had also missed his spot-kick.

In normal time, Andreas Brehme opened the scoring for West Germany with a deflected free-kick and Gary Lineker equalised with only 10 minutes left.
