Lunatic Ireland, 21, wants to retire from international football

Manchester City’s nutty Stephen Ireland is all set to stop offering up half baked excuses to miss international football, and finish from playing football for Ireland. The fact that he is just a 21-year-old whelp means that this decision is a tad out of left field to say the least.
The Guardian tries to explain this by claiming that Ireland feels out of place in the Irish squad and is a tad embarrassed about the whole “my gran died…oh no I mean my other gran” malarkey, but they also point out that he was happy to show his lycra superman pants to all and sundry. Stephen Ireland…the heir to Roy Keane’s mentalist mantle with the Republic.
