I had just broken into the Ireland team when we went to Portugal for a World Cup qualifier 21 years ago.

We’d been drawn in the group with Holland and Portugal, so as a player you think, it’s a tough group. But we had a very talented squad – when you look back at it, we had players at the top end of the Premier League then.
