French referee Marc Batta had no hesitation in pointing to the spot - but Australian international Bosnich dived full length to his left to push round Brazilian star Bebeto's kick. It was a huge let-off for Villa, and Bosnich - handed the keeper's jersey instead of Nigel Spink - was mobbed by delighted team-mates Bosnich is developing the happy knack of stopping penalties.
