Match Report: After 8 trophyless seasons, Tottenham won the game, and their third League Cup, with an injury-time diving header from Allan Nielsen. Justin Edinburgh became the last ever player to be sent off at the old Wembley, after brushing Robbie Savage's head with a fist following a confrontation between the two. Although not the greatest final ever, the dramatic ending more than made up for the two teams performances with events like Ramon Vega famously making a last-ditch sliding tackle to deny Emile Heskey a sure goal, after Ian Walker rushed off his line and Allan Nielsen's last minute diving header.
