- Norwich City 1-1 Bayern Munich, 1993
Having troubled Bayern’s defence away from home in the first leg (more on that later), Goss got the party started at Carrow Road in the UEFA Cup’s second round with City’s equalising goal.
Bayern had opened the scoring in NR1, making it 2-2 on aggregate, before Goss snuck in at the far post to poke home Chris Sutton’s header in the second half.
3-2 to City, and through to the third round to face Inter Milan. “You don’t need to ask who scored it,” John Motson stated on commentary!
- Norwich City 1-2 Wimbledon, 1995
City’s record against Wimbledon throughout the 1990s was not a flattering one, but it looked as though Goss could offer some salvation when he smashed the opening goal in during this game.
Ashley Ward spotted the run of Goss just outside the 18-yard box and teed it up nicely for the latter to shoot.
The number 11 made no mistake, thumping it past Hans Segers with the outside of his left foot into the far corner. Wimbledon did end up winning the game, however, courtesy of none other than Efan Ekoku.
- Leeds United 0-4 Norwich City, 1993
Goss simply loved a volley, and they’re not much more satisfying than when crashing in off the underside of the crossbar, which is exactly what happened at Elland Road here.
Already 2-0 up via goals from Ruel Fox and Sutton, Goss put the Canaries in cruise control with his screamer in the 61st minute.
Not a bad way to get your first goal of the 1993-94 Premier League season!
- Liverpool 0-1 Norwich City, 1994
Making a habit of scoring historic goals, Goss became the final player to find the net in front of a standing Kop at Anfield with another beautiful volley in 1994.
David James stood no chance, feet planted firmly on the ground as he watched the ball fly past him into the top right corner.
It proved to be Goss’ final goal and City’s final win of the 1993-94 campaign.
- Bayern Munich 1-2 Norwich City, 1993
It would be criminal not to put this historic goal in the number one spot! 12 minutes in, there was no indication of City being intimidated by the German giants, as Goss ran onto a knock down from Mark Robins to thunder the ball into the top left corner.
City went onto win that UEFA Cup second round first leg 2-1, of course, meaning they became the first British side to ever beat Bayern at the Olympiastadion!
It’s truly a goal that will forever be etched into Norwich City folklore, although Goss could argue that’s the case for most of his finishes! Happy birthday Jeremy!
