Republic of Ireland 1-1 England (1990) ECQ

  • Published on Nov 17, 2013
  • Looking back almost exactly 23 years to highlights of England's tough looking European Championship qualifier away to Republic of Ireland in November 1990. On a windy afternoon, David Platt gives England the lead before Tony Cascarino equalises for the home side as the match ends in an almost inevitable 1-1 draw (the second of three such scorelines in less than a year between the sides!). Includes a post-match interview with England manager Graham Taylor and some analysis from the following Saturday's edition of Saint & Greavsie.

    England were very lucky to be in Sweden in 1992 whereas Ireland were very unlucky not to be in Sweden

    Ah the old Wednesday afternoon qualifiers. I was at this with my late dad.
    There was a very tense atmosphere in Dublin that day. Not helped by the fact SF were having a protest march.

    1:00 Times have changed. That'd probably be a yellow card today, but not even a free kick back then.

    Funny that Casacrino should never have been playing for Ireland as we out found later. He was not qualified.

    What does an Irishman do when his car runs out of petrol? Gets out of his car and blames Britain.

      @Jose Parcenary Says more about the limitations of the late Graham Taylor than the merits of playing Gascoigne .

      I think it was a common tactic at the time to drop your 'skill' player for tough away games. Not sure exactly why. I guess they figured there was no point trying to play football when it was going to just be a pitch battle.

      I remember Liverpool would do the same thing with Peter Beardsley.

      Was at virtually all Ireland home matches from 86 . Atmosphere comes from the team . Look at the big wins like Germany at home , Bosnia etc . Stadium was rocking ...Our time will come again . There is huge talent coming through . I was at some brutal matches in the old stadium even under Jack . Brazil in 1987 had about 15k at it bizarrely. We win 1-0 too ! Certain matches stand out in memory, wins v Spain , Holland , Portugal Yugoslavia Germany etc

      In fairness, Cascarino had two men on him and neither did anything apart from ball-watch.

    I met Tony Cascarino at an event in London last week and chatted to him about that goal. Funnily enough he was a bit unsure which year it was, he thought it was 1992 (maybe a few beers had been had). Anyway, was very friendly and chatted away about what it was like behind the scenes with the squad. He said that big Jack gave Houghton a right verbal blast at the end of the match for that miss at the end (although I thought Houghton's miss in the return fixture at Wembley in March 1991 was actually worse as he had more time to pick his spot).

      @robicenco 1 Neither. Didn't achieve a united Ireland but brought it a lot closer and got nationalists a lot more rights than they had before.

      @seanbhoy493 If IRA supporters in 1990 could see into the future, and see Northern Ireland as it is today (in 2019), do you think they would have regarded the IRA as having won, or as having been defeated?
