Hislop set to quit internationals
Portsmouth's Shaka Hislop
Portsmouth's Trinidad and Tobago international goalkeeper Shaka Hislop is ready to announce his retirement from international football.

The 35-year-old says his priority is earning a new club contract and travelling for internationals is taking its toll.

"It is a long flight to Trinidad and I am not getting any younger," he said.

"I also feel they have enough cover, with Clayton Ince doing very well and Daurance Williams coming through."

But Hislop, who has 17 caps and was recently called up for the World Cup qualifiers with Mexico and St Kitts and Nevis, made it clear he was not ready to hang up his gloves for good.

"I am still enjoying my football and I will not consider retiring from club football until there is no longer a smile on my face," he added.
