Eric Lalor

Ray Houghton

The day that launched Jack Charlton and the Irish football team through the stratosphere.

It’s 30 years ago to the day when Ireland recorded one of their most famous victories. In their very first match at a major finals tournament, they went on to beat England 1-0 in Stuttgart at Euro’88.

It was a result which kick-started the Jack Charlton era and has earned its rightful place in Irish footballing folklore. A magical day in Germany, but can you name the starting XI for that game against England?
