No repeat of glory days of Italia '90

I had a great evening last Sunday watching the soccer in a pub called Sober Lane in Ringsend. I hadn't been to a bar to watch football in quite a while and the Polish and Irish fans were in super form.

Myself and my friends ended up reminiscing about Italia '90 and where we all were for the matches.

I was working in the Coombe Hospital as a domestic. I recall how the staff took over one of the empty wards, where we watched Packie Bonner save that famous penalty kick (inset).

Those really were the days. Given the one-all draw we witnessed last Sunday though, it's unlikely we'll see any similar heroics soon with current Irish team!
