Video: Andy Cole Scissor Kick V Leicester From 1999

Back in the 1990’s Leicester City had quite a good record at Old Trafford.

Their first Premier League appearance at United ended in a 1-1 draw and on the opening day of the 1998/99 season, the Foxes were of course the opponents when David Beckham struck a last minute free kick to earn the Reds a 2-2 draw.

Beckham’s goal was notable as it was the first league game after the World Cup in which he had been sent off.

However the following season Andy Cole arguably bettered that effort with a sensational scissor kick. Watch the goals from that 2-0 victory below.
