…it was 10 years ago today.
September the 1st, 2001, Munich’s Olympiastadion… five one and even Heskey scored.
Germany had only ever lost one World Cup qualifier on their own soil, had beaten us at the last international staged at the old Wembley, hastening Keggy Keegle’s departure and brining us Svennis.
An Owen hat-trick, a screamer from Gerrard his first England goal, Heskey actually scoring, after a dodgy start everything just clicked.
World was at our feet.
It was yet another false dawn…
