Jimmy Quinn, who is expected to win his 45th cap against Liechtenstein today, has insisted that he has no intention of giving up international football, even if Northern Ireland do not qualify for Euro '96.

Reading's joint player-manager needs two goals to equal Colin Clarke's record of 13 in 38 matches. Although he will be 36 next month he said: "I will carry on playing until I fall over. When you reach my age every game is a bonus, but a lot of players are persuaded to retire too early. John Aldridge is still knocking in the goals at 37."

NORTHERN IRELAND (probable): Fettis (Hull); Morrow (Arsenal), Hunter (Wrexham), Hill (Leicester), Worthington (Leeds), McMahon (Tottenham), Lomas (Manchester City), Lennon (Crewe), Hughes (West Ham), Quinn (Reading), P Gray (Sunderland).
