Tony Cascarino had a career in football spanning almost 20 years.
He played for Gillingham, Millwall, Aston Villa, Celtic, Chelsea and he also had a successful period playing in France for Marseille and Nancy.
During his time at Millwall, the club he supported as a boy, Tony played alongside Teddy Sheringham and during their three seasons together they scored a combined total of 99 goals.
Tony was Aston Villa’s record signing at £1.1 million. During his time at Chelsea he played in the 1994 FA Cup Final but finished on the losing side.
He played for his country, the Republic of Ireland, from 1985 until 1999 and scored nineteen goals in eighty-eight international appearances, and he was, for a time, Ireland’s record caps holder.
Tony was an integral part of the teams that took part in the European Championship in 1988 and World Cup in 1990 and 1994. His last international game came against Turkey in late 1999, as Ireland failed to reach UEFA Euro 2000. He got into a brawl with a Turkish defender and left the pitch showing the scars of battle. This marked the end of an international career which had spanned 14 years at the highest level.
Since retiring from Football in 2000, he has presented and been a pundit on TalkSport Radio and written for both The Times and Ireland’s Hot Press magazine. He has worked for both Sky Sports in England and TV3 and Today FM in Ireland, and released his autobiography in 2000 – Full Time: The Secret Life of Tony Cascarino, which received great critical acclaim.
