Paul Gascoigne openly wept after his caution in the 1990 World Cup semifinal.
Gascoigne had burst on to the international scene in 1989 with his goal in the World Cup-qualifying win over Albania, after coming on as a substitute at Wembley.
The midfielder had made his debut in 1988, but he was timing his run to the 1990 World Cup finals with precision.
The then-Tottenham man played a starring role when he made his first appearance in the finals against Holland, as England earned a draw after a disappointing opening game against the Republic of Ireland.
Gascoigne was the driving force as England then went on to defeat Belgium and Cameroon before lining up against West Germany in the last four.
However, when the midfielder was booked for a rash challenge and realised he would miss a possible World Cup final, his tears flowed, providing an iconic image.
