If You Know The History – 24th June 1994

Packy Bonner won his 75th cap as Ireland lost 1-2 to Mexico in Orlando in the World Cup finals in the United States on this day in 1994.

Jack Charlton’s side – having beaten Italy in their opening match in Group E – then went on to draw 0-0 with Norway; and when Italy drew 1-1 with Mexico in the final match of the section, it meant that all four teams finished on four points, leaving the two sides with the best records – Mexico and the Republic of Ireland – to go through to the second round.
