Damien Duff will captain Ireland
when he makes his 100th appearance for his country in Monday's
Euro 2012 match against Italy, coach Giovanni Trapattoni said on
"There have probably been more lows than highs," joked Duff
who will take the armband from Robbie Keane for the night. "It's
a proud moment but I'd take three points ahead of 100 caps."
Ireland have already been eliminated after losing to Croatia
and Spain in their first two Group C matches.
"It's a way for all of us to display our gratitude to Damien
who is not only an excellent footballer but a role model and an
example for the future generation," said Trapattoni.
