Goss recalls Canaries' finest hour

If Man Utd need any tips on how to get the better of Bayern Munich, they should listen to Jeremy Goss.

The midfielder inspired the Norwich side of the early 1990s to arguably their finest hour when they beat the Germans in their own Olympic Stadium.

Having finished third in the inaugural Premier League, Mike Walker's stylish Canaries embarked on their UEFA Cup adventure in season 1993/94.

They duly disposed of Vitesse Arnhem before shocking the mighty Bayern on a memorable night in Munich.

We had such a togetherness... and some tremendous players like Chris Sutton and Ruel Fox

The Canaries were eventually knocked out by Inter Milan but that win remains the only victory for a British side over Bayern in Germany, and Goss recalls with relish his part in a famous triumph.

"We were underdogs - they were favourites for the game and their record on their home patch speaks for itself," he explained.

"But when we went there, we had such a togetherness, a great inner belief and some tremendous players like Chris Sutton and Ruel Fox.

A superb volley from Goss helped the Canaries win 2-1 in the Olympic Stadium, and he also popped up with a vital equaliser in the return leg at Carrow Road to secure a 3-2 aggregate win.

"When they came to Carrow Road, they were a lot more determined because they knew we were no pushovers.

"They did get back into the game, but I was fortunate enough to pop up with the equaliser."
