    1996 US Cup

    A bit of an obscure one here ... does anyone have the full squad that we took to the the 1996 US Cup? I believe the players were given squad numbers and was just wondering if anyone had details of that squad in full.

    As always any help is very gratefully received!!

    Yep, here you go. Not entirely what you're looking for, but I think most players got a run at some stage, so they should all be here. There were squad numbers, but don't know where you'd find them.

    I was at Giants Stadium for the games against Mexico and Bolivia. The Mexico game got a little crazy when Daish was sent off for time wasting, then Quinny who wasnt even playing went on the the field arguing and finally Mick was sent off for arguing. Possibly the worst referee I've ever seen.
    Against Bolivia Keith O'Neill scored two goals. Plus Given was in goal but Packie came on in the last 10 minutes in his final appearance.

    "Ooooohhhh Nooooooo" Bobby Robson 91st minute.
