Italia '90 may be 30 years in the past, but the memories of that incredible World Cup for Ireland still live fresh in Paul McGrath's mind.
Speaking exclusively to Today FM's Dec Pierce and Anna Geary on Pumped Up Kicks, Paul McGrath revealed how Jack Charlton went to great lengths to ensure that one of his star players remained focused on the game in every way.
Paul McGrath has been very open about his battle with alcohol addiction in the past and is full of gratitude for Charlton, who would sit with him in his room at night during that World Cup while the rest of the team went out on the town.
McGrath and Charlton would instead sit and chat, sharing a packet of biscuits to ensure that McGrath remained fully focused on the games ahead.
