One of Ireland's most experienced soccer players has called time on his lengthy international career.

John O'Shea (37) played his 117th and final game for his country in their 2-1 win over the USA.

O'Shea, who is the third most capped Irish player, captained the side at the Aviva Stadium on Saturday, and was treated to a standing ovation.

After the match, he spoke of how having his family and "half of Waterford" at his final game was "amazing".

"I was close [to welling up] but the good thing was my little girl Ruby, she was doing all the welling up and I had to calm her down eventually.

"But that's the thing I'll cherish most when they [his children] can look back on that too when they're old enough. It's something I'll be immensely proud of going forward," he told RTÉ.
