1988 FA Charity Shield
Date 20 August 1988
Venue Wembley Stadium, London
Referee J Martin
Attendance 54,887

The 1988 FA Charity Shield was the 66th Charity Shield, a football match contested by the winners of the previous season's Football League and FA Cup competitions. The match was played on 20 August 1988 between 198788 Football League champions Liverpool and 198788 FA Cup winners Wimbledon.

The fixture was a rematch of previous season's FA Cup Final, and Liverpool gained some small revenge for that defeat with a 2–1 win, with both of their goals coming from John Aldridge the player whose penalty in the final three months earlier had been saved.[1] However, the man who had saved his penalty Wimbledon's goalkeeper Dave Beasant had gone, transferred to Newcastle United in the close season, and his place for this game was taken by Simon Tracey. Wimbledon had taken the lead in the 17th minute with a John Fashanu header from a Dennis Wise cross from the right. Liverpool equalized with John Aldridge scoring after 23 minutes, and then took the lead after 69 minutes with Aldridge again scoring after a cross from John Barnes.
