McClean wears his heart on his sleeve
James McClean scores brace for Ireland in Modova
Ireland earned an impressive 3-1 win in Moldova last night, leaving them sitting pretty with 7 points from 3 games in their World Cup qualifying campaign.
West Brom man James McClean treated himself to 2 goals, taking his international tally to 7.
And with Wales dropping 2 points at home to Georgia last night, Ireland’s narrow win over the same opponents suddenly doesn’t look like such a bad result.
McClean tells Irish media to have a ‘reality check’
But despite the positive results, the Irish media have been quite critical of Martin O’Neill’s side, particularly with regard to their style of play.
Speaking to Sky Sports afterwards, two-goal hero James McClean hit out at the Irish media over what he feels is unfair criticism.
