Gascoigne is originally from Gateshead. He started is professional playing career at Newcastle where he made 207 appearances for the club. In 1988 he moved to London club Tottenham Hotspur for a fee of £2 Million. He made his England international debut in this same year against Denmark.

His form in the 1989-1990 season was excellent, and he was tipped to be the star of Italia 90, even before the tournament had begun. Gascoigne played really well in England’s opening game against the Republic of Ireland, however that game ended up in a dismal 1-1 draw. Gascoigne became recognised as a world class player in England’s 0-0 draw against Holland in their second group stage match. Gascoigne was fantastic on that night, producing magic all over the field; he was all over the entire pitch that day; however despite England having two goals disallowed and dominating the match, the game still ended up in a draw. Against Egypt, in their final group match Gascoigne provided the ball for Mark Wright to head in the net, which sealed England’s progression to the knock out phase. Gascoigne produced two sparkling performances in the matches against Belgium and Cameroon. It was his performance against West Germany which touched most football fans all over the world. After picking up a second booking in extra time, Gascoigne cried knowing that if England were to beat the Germans he would be suspended from the match, however, Gascoigne being the strong character he is, still played brilliantly for the rest of the match.

Gascoigne went on to stay one more year at Tottenham after the World cup, and injury kept him out of action for a year. He eventually moved to Lazio for a fee of £5.5 Million, however in 1995 he moved back to Britain and joined top Scottish club Glasgow Rangers, in the 95-96 season, he was named Scottish footballer of the year. He was in top form during the European Championships in the year 1996, where he scored a breathtaking goal against Scotland, in a game which England won 2-0. Gascoigne never featured for England in their 1998 world cup squad. Between the years 1998- 2002 he played for the Premiership clubs, Middlesbrough and Everton and later moved on to English club Burnley.
