Dynamic in Dresden

Dynamic in Dresden

On this day in 1992, Villa won 3-1 against Dynamo Dresden during a pre-season tour to Germany ahead of the inaugural FA Premier League campaign. 

Paul McGrath opened the scoring in the 20th minute and just before half-time new signing Ray Houghton, who was playing his first game for the club, set up Tony Daley for No 2. 

Dalian Atkinson netted Villa’s third just after the interval before Thomas Rath hit a consolation goal for the home side.
