Quiz: Can You Name The 20 Most Capped Irish Players Ever?

Quiz: Can You Name The 20 Most Capped Irish Players Ever?

With Ireland back in action on Saturday in the first of a double-header of World Cup qualifiers against Georgia, it's time to reacquaint ourselves with the Irish team after a long summer of transfer speculation and a few weeks of Premier League action.

This quiz should help knock off any international football rust as it's trickier than you might think. We simply want you to name the 20 most capped Ireland players. Easy right? Maybe so, but there's always one or two players you'll forget.

Here's a hint to try to focus your memory: of the 20 players, 16 are retired, and of that 16, only one never made a World Cup squad. There are four players still active at international level, and none of them have been in a World Cup squad... at least not yet.

Hopefully after a win in Tbilisi, and a follow up victory in the Aviva Stadium against Serbia on Tuesday, this will change.

We've given you a generous six minutes to get all twenty, but we'll be expecting nothing less than 18/20 from real Irish fans.
