Finals Squad

On May 12 1998, Glenn Hoddle named a provisional squad of thirty for a Wembley friendly with Saudi Arabia, and this squad was then due to fly out to La Manga, Spain, whereupon decisions would be made to cut eight players from the final squad.  Ian Wright and Jamie Redknapp were part of the thirty, but they had declared themselves unfit and, thus, only six names had to be found.  They were to be Paul Gascoigne (a rising star at the 1990 tournament), Middlesbrough; Ian Walker, the Tottenham Hotspur goalkeeper; Phil Neville (younger brother, Gary made the final 22), Manchester United; Andy Hinchcliffe, Sheffield Wednesday; Nicky Butt, Manchester United; and Dion Dublin, Coventry City. Hoddle broke the news to them a day earlier than the planned announcement, but Gascoigne, in particular, took the decision extremely badly and left the camp in disgust.  It was a major shock and Gascoigne never played for his country again.
