What Mick McCarthy said about McGoldrick & Robinson
David came into camp with a shoulder injury, but was determined to play against Switzerland and what a game he had.
He was brilliant from start to finish and capped off a great performance with a first Ireland goal that was no more than he deserved.
Callum felt his hamstring in the second half of the game, so it is best now that he also goes back to Sheffield United for treatment.
