Sky Sports' Alan Smith reminds us of his first and last appearance for England as well as telling us about his best performance for his country.
First: A trip on Concorde
It was Saudi Arabia away. I remember because we travelled over on Concorde which was a thrill in itself.
I got on as a sub and it was not a very memorable performance by me. I think we drew 1-1 in the end, but I always remember Bobby Robson, he gave a team-talk beforehand and it was going on and on and on for some time. Don Howe, his assistant, was stood next to him and finally Bobby turned to him and said: "Have you got anything to add, Don?" Don said: "I think we better let the lads get changed. There's only 20 minutes until kick-off." But that was Bobby. He loved to talk about football.
Last: Replacing Lineker
I'm quite well known for replacing Gary Lineker against Sweden in Euro 92, which were less than memorable for England. I got warmed up along with Alan Shearer.
Graham Taylor told us to warm up and I got called back instead of Shearer, who was a young boy then. I thought I'd be going on to partner Gary, who was my partner at Leicester back in the day, but instead he came off, I went on.
I didn't have time to think about it really. I just wanted to try and do my best, but it didn't really work out.
Best: Wembley winner against Turkey
I scored the only goal of a European Qualifier at Wembley, which was quite a thrill. It was against Turkey and all my family were up in the stand.
We didn't play so well in the second half and we got booed off the pitch at the old Wembley, but I didn't care.
I'd got the only goal of the game for my country to get us three points in a qualifier so that was enough.
