STEVEN DAVIS has dropped a hint that he could be ready to retire from international football.

The Rangers midfielder is Northern Ireland's captain and holds the record for being the most capped player in British history.

The Green and White Army face a World Cup qualifying double-header against Lithuania and Italy as their Group C campaign comes to a close.

They sit fourth in the group with just one win from six outings so far, meaning they can't qualify for next year's tournament in Qatar. 

However, they will be aiming to finish the section on a high.

Reflecting on how the group has panned out for Northern Ireland, Davis has hinted he could hang up his boots on the international front after these games.

He said: “At the end of every campaign you sit back, reflect and see how you feel physically and how you see things progressing.

“That will be the same situation this time, I will just reflect on things and we will go from there."

Asked specifically if it would be a fitting way to bow out, he added: "I am not thinking about that at this moment in time.

“I am just here this week to do as well as I can and try and get two good results.

“The Italy game is a great one for us to look forward to, to finish off the campaign and test ourselves against them – that is all my focus is on at this moment in time.

"We want to finish the campaign strongly. We know our chances of qualification have gone but we want to keep building something, keep progressing and hopefully that shows in the performances."
