The 1999 Football League 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 after a cross from the right from Steffen Iversen had been blocked by goalkeeper Kasey Keller.[2] Justin Edinburgh became the last ever player to be sent off at the old Wembley, after throwing a punch at Robbie Savage following a confrontation between the two. In the last few minutes of the game, Ramon Vega made a last-ditch sliding tackle to deny Emile Heskey a goal for Leicester, after Ian Walker rushed off his line, and Allan Nielsen scored a diving header.[3][4]
