Anthony Guy ("Tony") Cascarino (born 1 September 1962 in St Paul's Cray, Orpington, Kent, England) is a former association football player. He made his name as a striker for various British and French football clubs and for the Republic of Ireland national football team.

Since retirement, he has presented on TalkSPORT radio and written for both The Times and Ireland's Hot Press magazine.

He has worked for Sky Sports before departing in the summer of 2011 after he made a comment describing Arsenal footballer Armand Traore's performance as a "holocaust" in a game against Manchester United. He has since denied any allegations of anti-semitism .
