The Republic of Ireland made their World Cup debut in 1990, qualifying for the first time after nearly 60 years of attempts. The Irish were heavy underdogs in Group F alongside England, the Netherlands, and Egypt. Without a superstar squad, they shocked the world by reaching the Quarter-Final stage, but were ultimately sent home by Italy in a tight 0-1 defeat. The 1990 Italia World Cup remains the Republic of Ireland’s best ever World Cup result. The Irish football heroes that wore this kit include team captain Mick McCarthy, Kevin Moran, John Aldridge, David O’Leary, and Frank Stapleton.
This shirt is a classic remake of the OPEL version of the Republic of Ireland 1990 World Cup jersey. FIFA and UEFA prohibited national teams from playing with sponsored shirts, so the team competed with the blank version of this jersey, featuring the 90s chevron design pattern. We prefer the OPEL version!
This jersey has been remade with impeccable attention to detail. It features the same collar, sleeving, ridges and embroidery as the original.
Printing is done in the original style, as close to the authentic font and colour as possible. If the jersey originally had the number printed on the front we will print this unless instructed otherwise.
Please check the measurements carefully as most people find they require a size up. The jerseys have a slim or muscle fit.
The 'No printing' version of this jersey is eligible for fast shipping. All other variants ship via standard or economy.
Global health situation: We are currently maintaining a normal service. Should your order be affected by a delay we will provide you with updates via email or SMS.
We only use the best quality polyester and fabric. Our crests are always embroidered and we use sublimation inks to make sure the colours of the 90s stand the test of time.

Ireland 1990 Italia Irish retro replica football shirt
Only 4 stars as they never included the Happy Birthday message I had requested which left my buddy guessing
Great comfortable top
Takes a while to deliver but what's the rush , surprising very good quality for a replica. Good fit, would definitely recommend
I have bought shirts from beautiful 90s and went experimental and got a custom print. I asked for Joyce 16, which is a reference to Irish Writer James Joyce. I'm thrilled it looks brilliant. There was a little bump in the road when the shirt originally arrived and bore the name 'custom printing' on the back. I got worried that I wouldn't get a replacement even though I made sure that I correctly put in the right information. I haven't knocked off a star from my review because I emailed Beautiful 90s and they swiftly fixed the problem by sending out a replacement. I like what the company does, and I think their quality is excellent, and a majority of bad reviews are due to slow delivery. Still, COVID has overloaded the postal service so if you're reading this review give them time with that because the quality is wondering.
