PKT5417-400496 FOOTBALLER - ERIC CANTONA 1995 Manchester United football star Eric Cantona attacks fan. This is that moment brought shame on English soccer last night. Manchester United's tempestuous French striker Eric Cantona launches an astonishing two-footed dropkick on a Crystal Palace fan in the crowd. The attack triggered a ounch-up across the barrier during which team mate and former England captain Paul Ince is alleged to have screamed at opposition fans: 'Come on then, We'll take you all'.
