We remember THAT clearance as Dunne retires from Ireland


As Richard Dunne announces his retirement from international football to concentrate on his QPR club career, we remember his 2011 epic performance against Russia.

Dunne was called on to cover the defence in one of the most entertaining 0-0 draws of all time, as Russia were left scratching their heads at how they were not able to penetrate Shay Given’s goal.

His performance was so great that it led to viral jokes, in a play on the Lyons Tea – All Talk advert (below), in which Dunne tells Trapattoni to “bring on more Russians” leaving Trap to reply that “there are no more Russians”.
