60 Up For James

James McClean

THE REPUBLIC of Ireland may have drawn a blank against Denmark last night but for James McClean the game marked his 60th senior international appearance.

The Stoke City winger played the full 90 minutes of the goalless draw at the Aviva Stadium in Dublin as the Republic earned their first Nations League point.

Denmark dominated for long periods but Burnley’s Jeff Hendrick squandered a golden opportunity for the hosts to break the deadlock, albeit in controversial circumstances after the Danes had stopped playing following an injury to Harry Arter.

Ireland continue their Nations League campaign against Wales, again in Dublin, on Tuesday when McClean could find himself lining up against his club teammates Joe Allen and Ashley Williams.
