Damien set to quit

DAMIEN DUFF is likely to confirm his retirement from international football after reaching the 100-cap mark against Italy tonight.

Duff has joined the likes of Niall Quinn, Steve Staunton, Kevin Kilbane, Robbie Keane and Shay Given as having played 100 times for Ireland, but the Italy game is likely to be his last.

"I have made my mind up on what I am going to do but this isn't the right time to be letting anyone know, I'm sure the rest of the lads know what they are going to do as well," says Duff.

"In regards to playing on into my 30s I don't think it should be a problem, I look after myself and I feel as good as ever at the minute so I don't see why not."
