Gareth Southgate penalty miss - 1996

The Euro 96 Gareth Southgate penalty miss at Wembley Stadium won't be easily forgotten.

Hosting the Euro 1996 tournament, England were under pressure to do well. And the made a decent effort reaching the semi-finals where they faced rivals Germany.

The games started well with a Alan Shearer goal after only 3 minutes. However, Stefan Kuntz equalised in the 16th minute making the score 1-1. This was how the score remained throughout the remainder of the game. Then, despite efforts by Paul Gascoine and co, no more goals were scored in extra time. A German - England penalty shootout awaited the fans.

Five penalties were taken by both teams, and all were successfully converted. Now, sudden-death. First up was Gareth Southgate. He shot strainght at the German keeper Andreas Kopke who successfully defended his goal. Then Andreas Muller sank England's dreams, hitting the ball on target and putting England out of the competition.
