Republic of Ireland Senior Football Team Results 1990 to 1994

Following hard on the heels of the Republic's qualification for the Euro 88 Finals Jack Charlton further enhanced his legendary status with Irish soccer fans when he led Ireland to qualification for the World Cup Finals for the first time.

Finishing in second place just just one point behind Spain, Ireland qualified directly from Group 6 for the 1990 World Cup Finals in Italy. This was a result that Irish football fans had been craving for decades.

1990 World Cup Finals in Italy

As in the Euro 88 finals Ireland were drawn with England in the group stages, along with Holland and Egypt. Ireland went on to qualify for the quarter final against the host country Rome yet only scored one goal from open play. Having beaten Romania in a very tense penalty shoot-out (result 5:4) Ireland eventually succumbed to a Toto Scillachi goal on an unforgettable night in the Italian capital.

1994 World Cup Finals in the USA

The Republic of Ireland senior team also went on to qualify for the 1994 World Cup in the USA. The result of the last match in the 1990 Finals was a 1-0 loss to Italy and the 1994 World Cup began for Ireland with a revenge defeat of the Italians by the same score line. Ray Houghton, one of Ireland's best recruits under the Granny Rule, scored the all important goal.

Despite this very promising start and qualification for the next round Ireland surrendered tamely to the Dutch in the withering heat of Orlando, Florida. The result was 2:0 at full time. It was during this period that Irish football greats such as Niall Quinn and Roy Keane came to prominence.
