Richie Sadlier Tells Brilliant Story About Ireland U20 Team At The 1999 World Cup

Richie Sadlier Tells Brilliant Story About Ireland U20 Team At The 1999 World Cup
By PJ Browne Updated

Richie Sadlier was on Second Captains on Monday and the former Ireland striker got to discussing his experience of how players keep themselves entertained during international tournaments.

Talking about playing for Ireland at the U20 World Cup in Nigeria in 1999, Sadlier said that once players had become bored of putting a golf ball into an empty Ribena bottle, some got a bit more risque with the entertainment.

Sadlier takes up the story:

There was one afternoon where there was seven of us in a bedroom. I'm not going to name any names and there was a suggestion by someone, I don't know how to phrase this - 'why don't we have a competition where we pleasure ourselves and the fella who can complete the job first is the winner. So we all reacted the way you're reacting now.

We all laughed and said well this fella is nuts. We were trying to work it out and he's actually suggesting what we think he is.

Myself and another fella left, because it appeared this is actually going to happen. And it did, five lads competed with one another.

Forward to around 31.45 to hear the story.
