MATCHDAY QUOTES

"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 Villaโ€™s lead seven minutes from the final whistle."

*Swissinfo*
Tuesday, 21 August 2001

Basel has fallen at the final hurdle in their quest to get into the UEFA Cup for the second time by losing 4-1 against Aston Villa in Birmingham. After a 1-1 draw in the first half, Aston fought back with a vengeance in the second half.

In front of almost 40,000 spectators in the Villa Park stadium in Birmingham, Christian Grossโ€™ team took the lead after Scott Chipperfield scored a goal in the 30th minute. However, shortly before half time Aston Villaโ€™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 Villaโ€™s lead seven minutes from the final whistle.
