PositionMidfielder/Forward

Damien progressed through Irish junior football to join Blackburn Rovers from Lourdes Celtic in 1996.

Arguably the Republic's most naturally-gifted match winner; he has represented his county from all levels from Under-16s upwards.

Damien benefited through Rovers return to the Premiership, adding more goals to his undoubted ability.

Prior to leaving for the World Cup finals in Japan, Damien's only international goal came in a 2-2 draw with Croatia in August 2001.

A regular member of Mick McCarthy's plans, although he can be used wide on the left, he often operated in a more central role alongside Robbie Keane.

Damien completed his fine form in the 2002 Group E matches with Ireland's third goal in the 3-0 defeat of Saudi Arabia in Yokohama that confirmed qualification to the last 16.

He joined Chelsea in July 2003 for 17million and played a great part in Chelsea's success before joining Newcastle United for 5million in July 2006 with a five-year contract.

He joined Fulham in August 2009 with a three-year contract that was extended to June 2013 in August 2011 and to June 2014 in February 2013.
