(John Aldridge)

Date and Location:

Peter Robinson, a British Photographer

John Aldridge of the Republic of Ireland was waiting in the sidelines to be substituted in for Tommy Coyne.  The match was during the 1994 World Cup between Mexico and the Republic of Ireland (2-1 Mexico win).
Due to some miscommunication on the sidelines regarding the Fourth Official, Aldridge’s entry was held up to three minutes.
Apparently a FIFA Official had taken the substitution document form from Manager Jackie Charlton but failed to give it to the Fourth Official.
In the photographs he is indicating to the Official the number of minutes he has been waiting for.
In fact Tommy Coyne had already gone off but Aldridge was still being denied to go in.
