A couple of years ago, we chatted to Ireland and Everton legend Kevin Sheedy on Team 33 about his career in the game.

He was back in Dublin on Friday as he took part in a Street Legends Community Football event ahead of the UEFA Euro 2020 qualifying draw which takes place this Sunday.

We caught up with the man who scored Ireland's goal against England at Italia 90 as he discussed his recent time coaching at Saudi club side Al Shabab, what he's made of the decision to appoint his former team-mate Mick McCarthy as Ireland manager (and then Stephen Kenny from 2020), the years prior to Euro 88 and what he's making of Everton's form under Marco Silva with the Merseyside derby taking place this weekend.

You can watch the full chat above or listen back on the podcast player:
