The Republic of Ireland national football team were accepted into the international community in 1923, though they did not play their first full international until the three - nil defeat to Italy in Turin, in 1926. Following that start, they had not qualified for any international tournaments until Euro 88 in Germany. That achievement was followed by reaching the quarter-finals of the 1990 World Cup, this was the only time that the Irish qualified for two consecutive tournaments. Ireland play their home games at Lansdowne Road in Dublin, the same venue as used by the national rugby side.
