Episode 1746: Going Back To The 2002 World Cup, Kenny Cunningham On Getting Sent Home By Spain; Unforgivable Misses And Painful Penalties
We’re going back eighteen years into the mists of time today to revisit what was in many ways one of Irish football’s high points: the 2002 World Cup in South Korea and Japan (well, a high point bar… ah let’s not revisit it).

However it ended on a low point against glamour side Spain and the man who would go on to become the captain of the national team after returning from the tournament, Kenny Cunningham joins us to share his memories of our last-16 match exit, marking a young Raul, awful penalties and an ice-cold baby-faced Robbie Keane.
Plus there’s missing open goals, recalling Ireland-Spain with Abe Simpson, and Eoin making up for lost Premier Sports chats.
