After qualifying for consecutive World Cup Finals, Northern Ireland failed to qualify for Italia '90 dropping 5 of their 8 matches. The Republic's first appearance at a major finals tournament came in UEFA Euro 1988. In the finals in West Germany, Ireland beat England 1–0 in Stuttgart with a header from Ray Houghton, drew 1–1 with the Soviet Union in Hannover, with Ronnie Whelan the scorer, and lost to Holland 1–0 in Gelsenkirchen, coming within 8 minutes of a draw that would have meant a semi-final place. The Republic of Ireland's longest competitive winning streak was achieved in 1989 during the 1990 FIFA World Cup qualification campaign. Five games against Spain, Northern Ireland, Hungary and Malta twice, were all wins for the Irish. Subsequently the side made it to the 1990 FIFA World Cup (Italia '90). Three draws in the group stage against England, Egypt and Holland was enough to make the knockout stage. Virtually the whole country watched as they beat Romania on penalties with Packie Bonner making a vital save and David O'Leary scoring the decisive spot-kick. Ireland were then beaten 1–0 by Italy in the quarter final in the Olympic Stadium, Rome.
