It was 20 years ago that the World Cup arrived in the United States, with America providing the kind of razzmatazz and glamour usually reserved for the Superbowl.

There were surprises aplenty when the greatest show on earth got underway, with a Hristo Stoichkov-inspired Bulgaria and Thomas Brolin's Sweden reaching the semi-finals.

A host of former and future Liverpool players helped Republic of Ireland qualify for the knockout stages - who could forget Ray Houghton's stunning winner against Italy?

Just one Red at the time was involved in the tournament - Stig Inge Bjornebye lined up for Norway, who were participating at the World Cup for the first time since 1938.

Ultimately, Brazil lifted the trophy courtesy of a penalty shoot-out triumph over the Italians, hoisting aloft the prize for the fourth time in history.
