Can you tell which Ireland player has the most caps?

Some of these are trickier than you think.

IF HE COMES OFF the bench against Austria on Sunday, Aiden McGeady will win his 90th cap for Ireland, inching him ever closer to Niall Quinn in eighth place on the all-time list.

Some of us thought the winger had more than the Mighty Quinn, others way less.

But it got us thinking, how many other pairs might cause you to scratch your head and ask who has more caps between these pairs:

1. Here's a relatively easy one to start
INPHO
Steve Staunton
INPHO
Steve Finnan
2. Can you tell which of these two Arsenal players had more?
INPHO
Niall Quinn
INPHO
Liam Brady
3. This one's a little trickier as they're both in the 100 club
INPHO
Kevin Kilbane
INPHO
John O'Shea
4. And at the other end of the spectrum
INPHO
John Egan
INPHO
Joe Lapira
5. Which James has appeared more?
INPHO
James McCarthy
INPHO
James McClean
6. These two midfielders were born eight years apart, but who has more caps?
INPHO
Jonathan Hayes
INPHO
Callum O'Dowda
7. Neither has featured for a while, but who won more caps?
INPHO
Leon Best
INPHO
Conor Sammon
8. There's only a single cap between this pair so it's a tough ask
INPHO
David Meyler
INPHO
Stephen Quinn
9. Which former Ireland captain won more caps?
INPHO
Roy Keane
INPHO
Andy Townsend
10. Finally, which Jeff has more caps to his name?
INPHO
Jeff Hendrick
INPHO
Jeff Kenna
