World Cup jerseys pull on the heart strings of nostalgia, ask any football fan to name their favourites and I can guarantee you it’s based on their age, the tournament and other factors important to them, very few will choose them based on there design. So it’s no surprise that Irish fans favourite jerseys are from the World Cups and Euros we qualified for, despite so many examples of better looking and fitting jerseys over the years.

YBIG played the American fans team last week and one of the Irish players had the grey USA World Cup ’94 jersey, the fans were offering to buy it and swap it (it can be bought on ebay for around €350). So for them it’s special as it was the first time hosting the WC, and might have kicked off those fans love affair with the game. As a jersey though it is horrendous looking.
