How well do you remember the lyrics to the Italia 90 classic hit 'The Game'?

“We’re gonna start a fire…”

He's the man
Cap in hand

Eoin Hand
In the stand
We're all off to Rome
Cascarino

The best in the world
And Kevin Moran too
Doesn't let 'em in
Holds the fort

Wearing number one
Is from Donegal
Billy's staying home
And Houghton got the goal

Only one can go
Now we know who's best
Listen to the Lansdowne Roar
Aldridge got another score

Party on the dancefloor
Safer than a locked door
Packed in pubs
Ticket stubs

Suncream rubs
English clubs
European Championship
The summer of '88

Razor Houghton in Stuttgart
Joxer and the lads away
Danger man
Sure thing

Supersub
Goal machine
The Tricolour unfurling
Schillaci twist and turning

There'll be no returning
No more Italian learning
Voices rising higher
Get off to a flyer

England waiting for us
We've got Jack to mind us
Butragueño
Manolo

Fernando
Michel
Legends of the game
Opel invest

Looking on with pride
The men who started it
Cans out by the swimming pool
Leave them looking like a fool

We'll be ready for the duel
Ronnie Whelan's so cool
Con
Bertie

Charlie
Micko Byrne
Qualifying
88

Gelsenkirchen
Stuttgart
Hear 'em singing
Georgie Best

No time to rest
Losing tragic
Cagliari
Lansdowne

Rome
Palermo
Squad
Chances

Fans
