James McClean Hits Back at Doubters and Trolls After Ireland Qualify For Euro 2016

James McClean Hits Back at Doubters and Trolls After Ireland Qualify For Euro 2016

There’s probably a few Guinnesses being sunk in Dublin right about now.

That’s because the Republic of Ireland are celebrating their qualification for Euro 2016, after their 2-0 win over Bosnia on Monday night sealed a spot in France next summer.

Jon Walters’ double ensured a 3-1 aggregate win for Martin O’Neill and Roy Keane’s stubborn side, and meant vindication for several of the players in their squad, most notably James McClean.

The outspoken West Brom winger was a second-half substitute against Bosnia, and helped ensure he and his team-mates hung onto their unassailable lead.

And after the full-time whistle, the former Wigan and Sunderland man took to social media to hit back at those that had had expressed doubt over whether or not he would be part of the tournament when the Irish were paired in the same qualification group as world champions Germany…

McClean will have his eyes paired for the official Euro 2016 draw, which takes place on December 11 in Paris.
