'Put 'Em Under Pressure' dominating the charts, Kevin Sheedy sticking the ball in the English net, Packie Bonner's iconic save against Romania. 

If you were old enough to experience the madness of Italia '90, count yourself lucky. If you weren't, we're sure you've heard the stories.

Now, 27 years later, a short film is being released documenting an Irish football supporter's dilemma when his partner goes into labour during the most important match in Irish football history. 

A Nation Holds Its Breath, a title which refers to commentator George Hamilton's famous words before Bonner's save, will premiere at the Dublin Film Festival later this month and we've got the trailer for you here:

The clip suggests a delightful mix of humour, emotion and of course a great big dollop of nostalgia and we can't wait to see it.
