Let's face it, it doesn't get more fun than day 17 of Italia 90. Do we need to say anything more than "You are Alf, Bill"?

In the sweltering heat in Genoa, Ireland's pressing game is well and truly tested against the "brainless" Hagi and Romania. There's Aldo's first World Cup meltdown, O'Leary's redemption and Big Jack has three days to organise an audience with the Pope.

Italy meanwhile are starting to enjoy themselves now that Toto & Baggio are running the show. The hosts take on Uruguay who are looking a little unsure of themselves without Ruben Sosa. 

Back in Ireland the players' families are mobbed by partying fans. Coincidentally the Point Theatre hosts Ireland's first ever all night rave party.
