Damien Duff picked a strong One To Eleven side... and there's plenty of Irish representation

There’s even room for a Melbourne team-mate.

THE SKY SPORTS cameras visited Tallaght Stadium this week to catch up with Damien Duff.

The former Ireland international picked his One To Eleven side for the Fantasy Football Club… and it’s pretty impressive.

Mark Schwarzer takes the goalkeeper’s jersey in what Duff admits is a surprise decision; Shay Given will be straight onto the Irish 100-cappers Whatsapp group to complain, you expect.

Denis Irwin beats the likes of Gary Kelly and Steve Finnan to the right back spot while Ian Harte slots in at the other full back position.

Richard Dunne partners Duff’s former Chelsea skipper John Terry at the heart of the defence.

Roy and Robbie Keane make up the rest of the Irish members down the spine of the side with the likes of Frank Lampard and Arjen Robben getting the call up. Here’s the full side; what do you think?
