Robbie Keane states he's satisfied to shoulder the burden of accountability and will never be weighed down by expectation as the Republic of Ireland get ready for Euro 2012.
He's all set to the problem of using on the critical part both being a participant as well as a chief, but insists every person inside squad should rise towards the occasion.
Keane said "Obviously there is at all times accountability on you as captain".
"Specially when you are aside for so prolonged, you'll find planning to generally be situations wherever a number of from the lads are moving for being down, there are going being several small niggles in coaching with players, but which is normal stuff when you might be absent and you happen to be stuck in a very hotel for your lengthy, very long time.
"But it surely's vital for me as captain as well as the senior gamers, as soon as any kind of negativity is across the camp, it's essential that us as senior gamers nip it from the bud straight apart.
