Ireland 1994 player shirt by Adidas believed to have been issued to Whelan for the 1994 World Cup.
Jack Charlton's men got off to the perfect start with the famous victory over Italy at the Giants Stadium and also drew with Norway to make it to the Round of 16.
Tempers famously flared on the touchlines in the Mexico game but there was little the side could do up against a classy Dutch team in Orlando and could not repeat the exploits of Italia '90 in reaching the Quarter Finals. Whelan made only one appearance at the tournament coming on for Townsend in the second half of the Norway game and this white away design was used in this game although in short sleeved given the New Jersey heat. The midfield stalwart was a part of the Ireland squad for 14 years between 81-95 and went to 3 major tournaments while at club level winning trophies galore with Liverpool.
Correct player size flock print professionally heat pressed, embroidered crest with Corn an Domhain USA '94 detail, no Opel sponsor, long sleeved version not commercially available, comes from the players own personal collection - a signed letter verifying this will be provided.
