There is something magical about the Republic of Ireland at the World Cup. The sea of green, the late drama, the screaming and shouting, the penalties, and Big Jack. Against Egypt in 1990, however, almost all the ingredients were missing. A dismal 0–0 draw,  against an Egypt side that set up to stifle Ireland all game, caused notoriously diplomatic broadcaster Eamon Dunphy to say he was “ashamed of Irish football” and Jack to retort claiming that his analysis had “as much relevance as a fly on a windowsill.” Two men who aren’t going to take anything lying down. Still, though, look at your man here. Sitting up and begging. Begging for a goal. Begging for Quinn or O’Leary to be brought off the bench. Begging for the long ball tactics to stop. Don’t worry, son. Three draws will see the Boys in Green go through.Choose from A2, A3 and A4. Absolutely spectacular fine art prints. Hahnemühle Photo Rag 310gsm, 100% Cotton, bright white paper.
