Tony Cascarino, born in Kent to an Italian father and English mother, played top flight professional footballer for over 18 years. The highlight of his football career was playing 88 times for Ireland.
The tall striker played for Gillingham, Millwall, Aston Villa, Celtic, Chelsea, Marseille and Nancy.
Cascarino, who used to be a hairdresser, started his career at Gillingham before signing for Millwall for £200,000 in 1987 where he forged a successful partnership with Teddy Sheringham.
Cascarino is best remembered for his achievement of playing 88 times in the green jersey of Ireland after making his debut in 1985. Cascarino also played for Villa, Celtic and Chelsea before moving across the channel to play for Marseilles and Nancy.
Cascarino’s career was never short of controversy and all was revealed in the No. 1 bestseller "Full Time: The Secret Life of Tony Cascarino", which is widely acclaimed as the best biography of any British or Irish footballer for a generation.
In the book that shocked the nation, Cascarino confessed that he was a "Fake Irishman", after he learnt that his mother was adopted and therefore his Irish ’grandfather’ was not a blood relative.
Cascarino was an integral part of the Ireland squad for the 1990 and 1994 World Cups and now presents Drivetime every weekday between 4-7pm with Patrick Kinghorn. Cascarino also writes for The Racing Post and The Times about football.
