The 1990 FA Charity Shield (also known as the Tennent's Charity Shield for sponsorship reasons) was the 68th 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 18 August 1990 between 198990 Football League champions Liverpool and 198990 FA Cup winners Manchester United. This would be the last time either team was to share the trophy, as new regulations were brought in two years later that allowed for extra time and subsequently a penalty shootout if a draw occurred in normal time.

Utility player Clayton Blackmore opened the scoring for United in the first half, but a John Barnes penalty kick drew Liverpool level shortly after the break. The match finished at 1–1 and the two sides shared the trophy for six months each.

New signing Denis Irwin made his Manchester United debut in the game, beginning a 12-year spell at the club which would see him collect numerous major honours.

Absent from the game was Manchester United captain Bryan Robson, who would be out of action until December that year due to injury, his place in the team being taken by Blackmore.[1]

As a curtainraiser to the match, the England women's national football team played Italy. Carolina Morace scored all four goals in England's 41 defeat and made it onto the front page of the following day's La Gazzetta dello Sport.[2]
