Today is 14 years to the day since Robbie Keane squeezed home a late equaliser in the Ibaraki Stadium.

To mark that we asked you where you were that famous day. Little did we know that one of the most horrific stories came from someone in this very office.

One of our writers (his identity is protected) was in Fifth Class in St Gerard's primary school in Bray (I hope that institution has changed in the meantime) and on 5 June 2002, around 11.00,  he was forced to watch the dress rehearsal of his school's production of 'Alice in Wonderland' rather than the match.

And you thought the cruelty and sheer inhumanity that used to blight the Irish schooling system was a thing of the past in 2002?

Here are the 10 best fan story responses we've received recalling Robbie Keane's goal against Germany. And we have a worthy winner.

Send us in your stories.

10. Terrence Reynolds

Terrence Reynolds in at No. 10 for furnishing us with a little known fact

9. Kealan Bolton

A tale with which can all empathise



8. Peter Kingston

I'm sure no one objected for too long Peter

7. Ger Kane

Ger Kane survived the ordeal allright

6. #WBYeats

The inimtable #WBYeats always knows how to paint an idyllic picture of Ireland

5. Tony Burke 

Tony Burke was another there that day....



4. Robert Donovan

There is no sight as glorious as seeing folk hopping about joyously in front of a Curry's shop window  


3. Mikey Browne

Mikey Browne suffering for the cause.

2. Jim Warren

Jim Warren giving Robbie Keane all the credit for his marriage. Can't help feeling Carsten Jancker's woeful display should share part of the credit.

1. Dave Fitz

However the clear winner is Dave Fitz. 12 years on, we salute you...
