Pittsburgh Steelers quarterback Ben Roethlisberger says that the team would be interested in playing a game in Dublin.

Ben Roethlisberger has said that he would like to play a NFL game in Dublin.

The Pittsburgh Steelers will play their week four match against the Minnesota Vikings at Wembley in 2013.

The team's quarterback told the Irish Examiner: "I would like it for [team owner Dan Rooney]. That's how much he means to me, and I think everyone on our team would say that.

"Even if guys said they would never want to play in London, 100% of the guys on our team would say they would play in Dublin for Mr Rooney. I'd do it for him."

Rooney, who was previously the US ambassador to Ireland, has suggested in recent years that he is keen to see the NFL hold a game in Dublin.
