Vieira refuses to quit international scene

Internazionale midfielder Patrick Vieira believes he still has plenty to offer France and has no intention of quitting the international scene. The 32-year-old was part of Raymond Domenech's 23-man squad for Euro 2008 in spite of an injury which forced him to sit out all of Les Bleus' games in the tournament, and he is again set to miss the opening fixtures in World Cup qualifying on September 6 and 10 due to injury. With Vieira unavailable, and with Claude Makelele having announced his international retirement, Domenech will have no choice but to field a new-look midfield for the games against Austria and Serbia. But Vieira insists that, however well the newcomers do, he will be ready to fight for his place when the next qualifying matches come around in October. 'In France I get the impression that once a player reaches 30 we put them out to pasture, so to speak,' he told L'Equipe. 'I know I'm capable of playing at a high level for more years. I know I can do it and I will. 'If I take all the chances that come my way I know I'll have no problem getting back my level and getting back into the France side. I'm motivated and determined. 'I know how determined I am to still play at the top level. I also know what I have to do to get there. The only way is to work. I'm not a shirker, I'm a worker. 'Although I don't want to do too much too soon, in the back of my mind I'm thinking about the France-Romania game (October 11).'
