6 September 1989, Sweden v England. Terry Butcher celebrates at the end of Englands vital

6 September 1989, Sweden v England. Terry Butcher celebrates at the end of Englands vital World Cup qualifier in Sweden, Butcher suffered a deep cut to his forehead early in the game but carried on after some impromptu stitches were inserted by the physiotherapist and his head swathed in bandages. His constant heading of the ball - unavoidable when playing in the centre of defence - disintegrated the bandages and reopened the cut to the extent that his white England shirt was entirely red by the end of the game. This match remains his defining moment as one of Englands great footballing heroes, especially as England got the draw they needed to qualify for the 1990 World Cup competition. watscan - - 24/02/2010

EDITORS COMMENTS
In this iconic print from 6 September 1989, we witness the unwavering determination and sheer resilience of Terry Butcher, one of England's footballing legends. As the final whistle blows in Sweden during a crucial World Cup qualifier match, Butcher can be seen celebrating with unbridled joy. However, what makes this moment truly remarkable is the story behind it. Early in the game, Butcher suffered a deep cut to his forehead that required impromptu stitches from the physiotherapist. Undeterred by this setback, he continued to play with his head swathed in bandages. But as fate would have it, constant heading of the ball disintegrated those bandages and reopened his wound throughout the intense match. By the end of it all, Butcher's white England shirt was completely drenched in red - a testament to his unwavering commitment on that fateful day. This unforgettable display of bravery and dedication has forever etched itself into English football history as Terry Butcher's defining moment. It symbolizes not only his personal triumph over adversity but also England's qualification for the highly anticipated 1990 World Cup competition. Through Albert Cooper's lens and Memory Lane Prints' preservation efforts, we are transported back to an era where passion for sport knew no bounds - an era when heroes like Terry Butcher inspired generations with their indomitable spirit on and off the field.
