International Tournament - US Cup

Republic of Ireland 2 (Connolly, Davino o.g.)
Mexico 2 (L Garcia 2, 1 pen.)

In a game marked by physical soccer, Mexico and Ireland played to a 2-2 tie in East Rutherford’s Giants Stadium. Mexico opened the scoring when Luis Garcia shot on frame in the 40th minute. Four minutes later, David Connolly, just beginning his national team career, evened the score. Five minutes later, Ireland went up on a Mexico own goal off Davino. However, Ireland would have two men sent off, Daish and Niall Quinn, as well as their manager Mick McCarthy and Luis Garcia would convert a 70th minute penalty to end the game at 2-2. The automatic one game suspension of McCarthy was overturned on appeal.
