Republic of Ireland boss Giovanni Trapattoni has agreed to remain at the helm for another two years.

The 70-year-old Italian, whose existing deal was due to expire next summer, has agreed a two-year contract extension with the Football Association of Ireland, which will take him through to 2012.

Trapattoni said: "I am delighted to continue my job with the FAI.

"This squad has huge potential. Our results demonstrate what self belief and structure can achieve and I am really looking forward to continuing the work we have begun."
