Steve Finnan gets the call

Tuesday 7 May 2002

Fulham's player of the Season Steve Finnan has been handed a place in Mick McCarthy's 23-man Republic of Ireland World Cup squad.

The news will no doubt crown a fantastic season for Finnan that has seen the right back take the Premiership by storm.

On behalf of all at the Club and all Fulham supporters, we would like to congratulate Steve on his selection and wish him the best of luck.
