20 years ago, the Republic of Ireland achieved their best ever result at a World Championship, when they claimed bronze at the World Youth Championships in Malaysia.
Managed by Brian Kerr, the side contained future senior internationals like Damien Duff and Glen Crowe, and future League of Ireland favourites Trevor Molloy, Neale Fenn, Dessie Baker and Colin Hawkins, who went on to have long club careers in the League of Ireland.
To mark the 20 year anniversary of their achievement, their manager Brian Kerr stepped into The Boot Room on Premier League Live with Sky Sports, to look back on three memorable weeks in the Far East.
It started with a training camp in Limerick, in which Kerr says they had to improvise, in order to prepare themselves for the searing Malaysian heat.

Whatever they did, it worked. They emerged with four points from their group of Ghana, USA and China, before Damien Duff's Golden Goal saw them defeat reigning African champions Morocco in the last 16.
Trevor Molloy's penalty defeated Spain in the quarters, before they came up against a legacy-setting Argentina side in the semi-finals. Esteban Cambiasso, Pablo Aimar, Juan Roman Riquelme and Walter Samuel are just some of the future stars who ground out a 1-0 win against Kerr's side.
They dusted themselves off to beat Ghana in the third pace playoff, returning home with bronze medals around their necks to a hero's welcome in Dublin.
