Signed by Spurs legend Ricky Villa!

This superb photograph shows Ricky Villa's Wembley wonder strike that won the 1981 FA Cup final replay for Tottenham Hotspur's against Manchester City. It has been personally signed by the Argentinian forward himself.

The first match ended 1-1 after Manchester City's Tommy Hutchinson has scored at both ends, setting up a replay four days later. Villa opened the scoring in the eighth minute, before goals from Mackenzie and Reeves put City 2-1 ahead. A strike from Garth Crooks brought the sides level with 20 minutes to go and it looked likely that the tie would again go to extra time.

But with 14 minutes left on the clock, Villa picked up the ball inside City's half, jinked past three defenders and slotted the ball home. It was an incredible strike and meant Spurs won the game 3-2. It was also justly voted the Wembley goal of the century in 2001.

John Motson's commentary of the strike still sends a shiver down the spine of Spurs fans even today: "Villa. And still Ricky Villa. What a fantastic run, he scores; amazing goal!"

The photo is 19 inches by 13.5 inches and comes with a certificate of authenticity to guarantee your purchase and protect your investment.

Rules of the Game: The referee indicates an indirect free kick by raising his arm above his head. He maintains his arm in that position until the kick has been taken and the ball has touched another player or goes out of play. FC Barcelona's Camp Nou stadium has the largest official seating capacity in Europe: 98,787. The first soccer league in the United States was the American Football Association, which existed from 1884-88. The United States won the first game in World Cup history when it defeated Belgium 3-0 in 1930. London's new Wembley Stadium, which opened in 2007, has a seating capacity of 90,000.
