PAUL Gascoigne is the latest player to sign up to take on the Germans in the 'Sir Bobby Robson Trophy'.

It will be a chance for Gascoigne to once again play under his former manager and to get revenge for that famous 1990 World Cup semi-final defeat. On 26th July at St. James' Park the former England manager is reuniting players who formed his 1990 World Cup squad - the side which came so close to reaching the final of the competition, only to be cruelly knocked out by West Germany on penalties.
