EPISODE ONE OF this year’s ‘The Toughest Rivalry’ series has landed.

AIB GAA have pitted former Tottenham manager Harry Redknapp and ex-Italy striker Gianluca Vialli against one another in a Gaelic football challenge game.

Redknapp has taken charge of West Cork club Castlehaven, while Vialli is coaching Dublin outfit Erin’s Isle and over the next eight weeks, we’ll get to see how the pair get on.

The sides will then meet in a rematch of the 1998 AIB All-Ireland club semi-final, when Castlehaven lost out thanks to a controversial goal at the death.
