Forget Barcelona, Bask In Denis Irwin Scoring One Of The Sexiest Goals Of The Mid 1990s

Forget Barcelona, Bask In Denis Irwin Scoring One Of The Sexiest Goals Of The Mid 1990s
By Conor Neville

Barcelona scored a scintillating goal against Roma yesterday, one which incorporated no fewer than 27 passes. The goal was reminiscent of a no less delightful goal scored in the slightly dowdier surrounds of Selhurst Park back in 1994.

The early-to-mid 90s in English football was not the sexiest era. Getting sexier for sure, sexier than the late 80s, but still played out at a hectic pace on uneven pitches with midfield destroyers haring in from all angles. English clubs were still getting humbled in Europe and the standard of passing was inferior to that on the continent.

Manchester United did their best to lift the standard and on one glorious night in the home of harum scarum football they did. Eric Cantona volleyed home a screamer and then Denis Irwin finished off this magnificent move to ensure United advanced in the FA Cup.
