1964 European Nations Cup – Irish Qualifying Campaign

In the 1964 European Nations Cup (now known as European Championships) four teams qualified for the Finals through a series of play-off matches rather than the qualifier groups that we know today.

The Republic of Ireland was drawn to play Iceland in the first qualifying round of the 1964 Nations Cup. Ireland won the first leg at Dalymount Park 4-0 with goals from, future Irish soccer manager, Liam Tuohy (2), Noel Cantwell, and Fogarty.

In the away leg Tuohy scored again gaining a 1-1 draw and securing Ireland’s passage into the next round of the premier European soccer competition.

Drawn to play Austria in the next qualifier round Ireland gained a hard-fought 0-0 draw in Vienna. The return match in Dalymount Park was also a very tight football match with winning by the odd goal in five. Noel Cantwell scored a last minute penalty to qualify Ireland for the quarter-final qualification round of soccer matches.

Ireland was drawn against Spain in the quater-finals of the 1964 European Nations Cup to be played over two legs. Following a humiliating 5-1 defeat to the Spaniards in Seville a dispirited Irish team succumbed to a 0-2 home defeat at Dalymount Park in front of 38,000 Irish fans.

Spain went on to beat reigning champions, the Soviet Union, in the final to be crowned European Nations Cup Champions for 1964.
