Watch: Remembering when AC Milan thrashed Foggia 8-2

In 1992 AC Milan faced Foggia on the final day of the season having already won Serie A.  Milan were managed by Fabio Capello and had Van Basten, Gullit & Rijkaard whilst Foggia had young Chelsea right back, Dan Petrescu and Signori up front.

Foggia 2 – 8 AC Milan

Here are 5 things we learnt:

Arrgio Sachi was the don

The former AC Milan was in the crowd and he looked magnificent.

Ruud Gullit had an amazing mullet

He was also had skills.  The Dutchman set up Milan’s 1st (crossing to Maldini to nod in) against the run of play with a left foot cross.

Signori and Petrescu inspired a short live fight back

Signori inspired a Foggia fight back to make it 2-1 but Gullit equalised with a bullet to make it 2-2.

Van Basten was a master finisher

Van Basten then scored a beautiful half volley to make it 3-2 before Milan ran riot with goals from Marco Simeone and Diego Fuser.
