Norwich City Legends v Inter Forever
Norwich City are delighted to announce that we will be marking 25 years since the Club’s memorable 1993 UEFA Cup run with a special charity match against Inter Milan’s ‘Inter Forever’ side at Carrow Road on Sunday May 20, 2018.
City legends from the last 25 years will join players and staff from the 1993-94 squad, to take on Inter Forever, a team of former Inter Milan stars, to celebrate one of the most significant chapters in the Canaries’ history.
The match, proudly supported by club Community Partner Aviva, will raise funds for The Nest – our Community Sports Foundation’s exciting project to build a groundbreaking community sports facility to benefit people from all walks of life in Norwich and Norfolk.
On the Club’s only foray into European competition, Mike Walker’s swashbuckling ’93 City squad defeated Vitesse Arnhem and famously became the only English team to beat Bayern Munich in the Olympic Stadium, before falling to eventual champions Inter Milan in the third round.
Norwich City Legends
Bryan Gunn The City stopper made a total of 478 appearances for Norwich City, was an integral part of the teams which finished 5th, 4th and then 3rd in the top flight and also played in the 1989 FA Cup semi-final. He was part of the 1993 UEFA Cup side and was Player of the Season twice, in 1988 and 1993.
Darren Huckerby The two-time Player of the Season played a pivotal role for the Canaries as they won the Championship title in 2003-04, and was named in the Norwich City Greatest Ever XI following a fan vote in 2008.
Adam Drury The former Club captain made over 300 appearances in 11 years with Norwich City and won Player of the Season in 2003. He is one of a very distinguished group of Club captains to receive silverware on behalf of Norwich City during its 115-year history.
Francesco Toldo The Italy international was named Serie A Goalkeeper of the Year in 2000 before winning 11 major honours with Inter Milan, including four Serie A titles. He kept three clean sheets in the UEFA European Championship finals of 2000 as Italy finished runners-up.
Javier Zanetti With 143 caps for Argentina, defender/midfielder Zanetti captained Inter in their 2010 UEFA Champions League Final victory over Bayern Munich – adding another medal to a glittering array of Italian and European honours. He has been voted in the FIFA World’s Best XI three times in a career spanning more than two decades at the very top of the sport.
Nicola Berti Berti was part of the Inter side that went on to win the 1993-94 UEFA Cup – his second winners’ medal in that competition. He was also part of the Italy side that finished third in the World Cup on home soil in 1990 and runners-up in 1994.
