Richard Dunne could hardly be less interested in the cash windfall qualification for Euro 2012 would bring himself and his Republic of Ireland team-mates.

Giovanni Trapattoni's players will reportedly share a bonus of 4million Euros - around £3.4million - if, as expected, they complete a play-off victory over Estonia at the Aviva Stadium tomorrow night.

However, when the final whistle sounds, he 32-year-old Aston Villa defender insists his bank balance will be the furthest thing from his mind, saying: "We all make enough money at our clubs and playing for Ireland is an honour, it's not about money."
