The Football Association of Ireland is calling on Irish fans and Irish radio stations to remember Jack Charlton next Tuesday as  we say goodbye to the legendary Republic Of Ireland manager and World Cup winner.

Jack Charlton`s funeral will take place in his native Northumbria on Tuesday and the FAI want fans to play ‘Put ‘Em under Pressure’ one more time to mark the occasion with a celebration of his extraordinary feats with the national team.

In conjunction with fan groups You Boys In Green, the Confederation of Republic of Ireland Supporters Clubs and the Irish Supporters Network, the FAI are calling on fans to wear green for the day and singalong to their favourite Italia’90 song at 12.30 pm to coincide with the conclusion of Jack’s funeral.

The FAI are also asking all Irish radio stations to play Italia ’90 anthem ‘Put ‘Em Under Pressure’ at 12.30pm next Tuesday afternoon as a national tribute to Jack.

Anna and Dec talked to Tony Considine  from independent supporters group "You Boys In Green"  about what the organisations are hoping for.

Pumped Up Kicks with Anna Geary and Dec Pierce every Saturday 2pm to 6pm
