LONDON, Oct 20 (Reuters) - England goalkeeper David Seaman has said he will not quit the international stage despite a torrent of criticism over his latest error.

Seaman, 39, conceded a goal direct from a corner in England's 2-2 draw with Macedonia in a Euro 2004 qualifier on Wednesday.

"As long as I am happy I will play on," Seaman told Sunday's News of the World. "Critics have never worried me and it has always been something you learn to live with as a keeper."

Seaman also let in a 30-metre free-kick from Brazilian Ronaldinho in the FIFA World Cup" quarter-finals this year.
