NORWICH CITY won yet more admirers but lost the match, and the tie, to Internazionale in the Uefa Cup. Dennis Bergkamp's goal put them out 2-0 on aggregate. Leeds kept up their distant chase of Manchester United and a bizarre rumour linked them with Paul Gascoigne, along with every other ambitious club.
