Twitter Reacts As James McClean Brace Gets Ireland Out Of Jail In Moldova

Ireland dug deep for a deserved victory in eastern Europe tonight, after seeing off a tricky Moldova challenge, thanks to a James McClean brace.

Wes Hoolahan was included in the starting line-up, and made an immediate impact, playing Shane Long through for an early opener.

As Ireland pushed for a second, they were caught on the break at the stroke of half-time.

After the break, the Irish took control once again, but tensions rose as they failed to find a breakthrough. Finally, James McClean eased the nerves.

The winger then doubled Ireland’s lead and his own tally for the night.

Job done, three points in the bag, and next up is a trip to Vienna in a few weeks’ time.
