Fantasy Kit Friday, 9-11-17 – Republic of Ireland, 1994

With the important World Cup qualifier against Denmark this Saturday and Tuesday, it seemed like a perfect time to try it.

Opinions may be mixed on its success, but it was definitely worth trying. The decision to go with a green and white crest was based on the fact that the orange of the real one would have looked out of place.
