GAZZA’S DENTIST’S CHAIR
“Behave yourselves,” England boss Terry Venables tells his squad, who end May’s pre-euro 96 tour with a blowout in Hong Kong to celebrate Paul Gascoigne’s birthday. Sampling China Jump nightclub’s ‘dentist’s chair’, Gazza & Co. have spirits poured down their throats, the pictures sold to a salivating press pack. Two weeks later, having survived calls to be axed, the Rangers midfielder twice dinks a ball over Colin Hendry to cap a 2-0 victory over Scotland. The chair-recalling celebration with water bottles comes to define the summer when football came home.
