Republic of Ireland Squad at 1990 World Cup Finals

Italia 90 Logo

The Republic of Ireland squad that travelled to the 1990 World Cup finals in Italy was very experienced with an average age of 28.4 years and an average of almost 28 caps per player.

The most experienced player in the squad was Frank Stapleton with 71 caps and he was also Ireland's record goal scorer at the time.

The least experienced player in Jack Charlton's squad was Alan McLoughlin of Swindon Town with just one cap.

Only two players that played in the 1990 World Cup qualifiers did not travel with the squad to Italy, Liam Brady and Liam O'Brien.

Three players that had not made any appearances in the 1990 World Cup qualifiers made the squad, Bernie Slaven of Middlesboro, David Kelly of Leicester City and John Byrne from the French club Le Harve. All three of these players qualified to play for Ireland through the Granny Rule.
