Wins for Sheffield United and Kerry would represent ‘the perfect weekend’ for Irish soccer star John Egan.
Egan – whose late father John senior was captain the day Seamus Darby’s goal famously dashed Kerry’s five in-a-row dream - is in action against Chelsea at Stamford Bridge today.
He will be keeping a close eye on proceedings at Croke Park tomorrow as the Kingdom attempt to throw a spanner in the works of Dublin’s drive for five.
“In 1982, Kerry had the chance to win the five-in-a-row,” he said in an interview with Sky Sports.
“My dad was captain that day. They were two points up and conceded a goal in the last kick of the game. I know that haunted him and it probably haunts me as well.
“That'd be the perfect weekend - we get the win in Chelsea and Kerry get the win in Dublin!
“I don't think I could ask for a better weekend than that.”Tweet
