However, shortly before half time Aston Villa’s Darius Vassell equalised the match after connecting with a well-placed pass from David Ginola. In the second half of the match the Colombian striker Juan Pablo Angel struck hard and scored two goals within 24 minutes, before David Ginola consolidated Villa’s lead seven minutes from the final whistle.
