Twenty three-years have passed, but Bayern Munich are still haunted by that UEFA Cup defeat at the hands of Norwich City - or at the very least by the shirts the Canaries wore on that historic night.

Today is the anniversary of that unforgettable victory against the German giants at their Olympic Stadium home, where goals from Mark Bowen and a stunning volley from Jeremy Goss gave City a 2-1 win.

The win meant the Canaries became the only ever British team to beat Bayern at the Olympic Stadium, before securing a 1-1 draw in the second leg at Carrow Road to seal their progress to the third round of the UEFA Cup.

And, in response to a tweet marking the milestone, the official twitter account of FC Bayern tweeted: 'We're still haunted... by those kits'.

Norwich's current third kit pays homage to the famous 1992-94 kit with the white base and yellow and green splashes of colour.

When it was launched before the start of the season fans likened it to a 'shower curtain', a '90's low budget travel agent uniform' and 'Stagecoach seats'.
