Everton captain Coleman delivers answer on Ireland retirement plans

Everton captain Seamus Coleman intends to play on with the Republic of Ireland.

Coleman was asked if he intended to remain part of the manager Stephen Kenny's plans for the Euro 2024 qualifying campaign.

"As long as I warrant my place in the team with my performances at club level, then yes," Coleman told RTE.

"I don't want to be in the team to be an experienced player, I want to have a reason to be here and that is to be on the pitch.

“If I'm doing the business at club level and the international manager wants to pick me, I'll be available."

He continued: "I'm not one of those players who is thinking about retiring from Ireland, because it means so much to me.

“Whatever form I'm in at the time and if it warrants a place in the national team, then I will be available."
