Notes - Extremely rare player shirt believed to have been issued or worn by Sheedy during 1976-78 period while he was part of the U-21 side. His biggest appearance during this time was at the Toulon Tournament held in the Region du Var, France during May in 1978. Ireland had to face a tough group with France, Mexico and Poland and only managed to earn a point after a 1-1 draw against Mexico ending at the bottom of the group. The Boys in Green went on to play another game to compete for the 7th place but Iran won the game on penalties. Sheedy had made his professional debut with Hereford United in 1975 and was called up for the tournament, playing in all the 4 matches as well as making other appearances between 1976-78. Between 1984 and 1993, whilst starring at Everton, the midfielder represented Ireland 46 times and is fondly remembered for being the first player to score a goal in a World Cup in 1990.
