Irish old guard to consider futures

Published Add your comment

Republic of Ireland's veterans were making no snap decisions about their international futures after their European Championship exit.

Captain Robbie Keane and Shay Given - the two most capped players in Ireland's history - and veteran defender Richard Dunne all insisted they would take time to consider whether they would play on.

Damien Duff, who wore the skipper's armband in Monday's 2-0 defeat to Italy to mark his 100th cap, seemed to hint his time was up, having previously revealed he had made up his mind whether to play on or not.
