Shay Given retires from international football

Everyone loves Shay Given because he's cool.  But now he's retired from playing for Ireland, do we all still love him?


Of course we do.  The Aston Villa goalkeeper ends his international playing career as his country's most capped ever player with 125 caps.  And did you know that the 'caps' they refer to are literally caps that the FA of that country give to them when they play?  Like a baseball hat.  Not to be confused with 'caps' as in 'I'll put a cap in yo ass, son' like that unpleasant gentleman said to me yesterday.  That means bullets.  And then I think fingers.  Some of the experience is a little blurred tbh
