Newcastle United v Barcelona Original Football Ticket
What a night. Barcelona’s star studded team arrived to face a Newcastle team ravaged by injury, particularly missing Alan Shearer.
A magical performance by Faustino Asprilla who scored a stunning hat-trick; a penalty and two bullet headers from Keith Gillespie who was also having the match of his life. In typical United fashion though, the team were hanging on at the death after almost giving away a three goal lead.
A fantastic item of European Newcastle United memorabilia.
