They’d thrashed out 210 minutes' worth of football before it really got going, but nobody really remembers that these days.
Very easily forgotten is that this legendary FA Cup tie – that of Peter Schmeichel’s last-minute penalty heroics against Dennis Bergkamp; of Ryan Giggs’s impressive hairy escapades – was in fact a replay, played after a goalless draw three days earlier at the same venue.
After 120 minutes of stalemate, this clash between English football’s greatest footballing rivals got its spark early in the replay when a Manchester United golden boy swept home gloriously from 25 yards.
On the hour-mark: enter Giggs from the substitutes’ bench… only for Arsenal to equalise within nine minutes. But you know the rest.
So who kicked a ball in that glorious semi-final showdown in the West Midlands? Since it’s not among our more difficult quizzes, we’re only giving you four minutes to get this one done – which should still be ample time for your bulging brain. After you’re done, show us your time @FourFourTwo...
