Ronnie Whelan gets set for Italia 90

Italia 90 was my first real World Cup – sure it ended in a pile of disappointment and tears (mostly after the Costa Rica game) but before the tournament boy was I pumped up! And I wasn’t the only one pumped up – just look at how excited Ronnie Whelan was. He got set for the World Cup with a cup of tea, some brown slacks, the worlds most uncomfortable pose and big new telly with a big new remote control…all the better to record Ireland 0 Egypt 0 on, a game they are still talking about in pubs and clubs everywhere (c John Motson)…
