Republic of Ireland 1949 Retro Football Shirt. Some record books can state that Hungary were the first foreign conquerors of England but the 52,000 people who attended the international fixture between England and the Republic of Ireland on September 21st, 1949 know otherwise. The meeting between England and the Republic of Ireland, at Everton?s Goodison Park, was arguably a home game for the travelling Irish as Liverpool, the city, has always been a home from home for the Irish. With Peter Farrell captaining Everton and playing for Ireland at the time, there was added interest locally. A full time scoreline reading England 0 Republic of Ireland 2 was not envisaged but happen it did.
