World Cup 94
This is my favourite callcard, it is a picture of the Irish team, when they were competing in the World Cup. It was held in the USA in 1994.The picture was taken in Landsdowne Road, where Ireland play most of their International matches. Jack Charlton is sitting in the middle. He was the manager at the time. He won a World Cup medal in 1966, when he played for England. He has a famous brother called Bobby Charlton. He played for Manchester United, Jack played for Leeds United.
FAI stands for the Football Association of Ireland.
