1999 Football League Cup Final
Event 1998–99 Football League Cup
Date 23 March 1999
Venue Wembley Stadium, London

The 1999 Worthington Cup Final was played between Tottenham Hotspur and Leicester City, at Wembley on Sunday 21 March 1999. 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.
