February 15 1995: Republic of Ireland 1-0 England (match abandoned due to crowd trouble)
The most memorable match between the two nations - but for all the wrong reasons. The game at Lansdowne Road had to be abandoned after 27 minutes when England fans in the upper west stand, annoyed at seeing their team go 1-0 down, started ripping up seats and benches before hurling them at home supporters below. Twenty supporters were injured in the incident, which is still regarded by many as the darkest night for English football. It later emerged that far-right groups such as Combat 18 had bought tickets for the match to cause trouble. Republic manager Jack Charlton could not hide his fury, saying afterwards: "Every Englishman should be ashamed." Terry Venables, then in charge of England, described the night as "sickening."
