Notes - Ultra rare player shirt believed to have been prepared for McMahon for the 1990 World Cup in Italy. The Three Lions were drawn in Group F alongside Republic of Ireland, the Netherlands and Egypt, after qualifying in the the runners-up spot in Group 2 behind Sweden. The side's opening match was an all British match-up against Ireland, which finished 1-1 with substitute McMahon unfortunately losing the ball of the edge of the box which allowed Sheedy to grab an equaliser. The midfielder did not feature in the 0-0 draw with Holland, but did play the full match in the 1-0 win over Egypt, which saw the side top the group with 4 points. Next up, was Belgium in the Round of 16 which saw David Platt grab a dramatic 119th minute winner with the prospect of penalties looming. The Quarter-Finals against Cameroon saw England once again win in extra-time with Lineker scoring the winning goal from the spot. Then came that game against West Germany in the Semi-Finals, where England suffered heart-break as they lost out 4-3 on penalties after the game finished 1-1. In total McMahon featured 4 times at the tournament, including the Third Place match against Italy that the side lost 2-1. The midfielder earned 17 caps between 1988-90, whilst representing both Everton and Liverpool, as well as Villa, Manchester City and Swindon at club level
