Mick Mc Carthy Ireland's World-Cup 2002 by Mick McCarthy with Cathal Dervan. Hardback. 1st Edition. Simon-&-Schuster, 2002.
Description: The exclusive diary of Mick McCarthy, award-winning manager of the Irish football team, detailing the blood, sweat and tears and pure joy of the year leading up to the 2002 World Cup and the Irish team's experiences throughout the competition. Mick McCarthy played for Barnsley, Manchester City, Celtic and is currently the manager of the Irish soccer team. He has had a long association with Irish football, having played for Ireland in Euro'88 and, as captain, led the Irish team into the 1990 World Cup. This diary will contain his story; his exclusive version of events on the road to Asia, from the Irish team's first turn of fortunes against Macedonia in Autumn 2000, when they scored in the dying moments of the match, until the games played in Asia in June 2002. This book will also provide a daily diary on his experiences with the Irish team throughout the competition and promises to be both provocative and revealing.
