McClean is benched!

Evening Telegraph (Late Extra Edition) - - SPORTS -

WEST Brom boss Tony Pulis has joked he is ready to bench James McClean af­ter he ended Wales’World Cup dreams.

The winger scored the win­ner in the Repub­lic of Ire­land’s 1-0 vic­tory in Cardiff on Mon­day as they reached the play-offs at Wales’ ex­pense.

And Pulis re­vealed McClean has been rub­bing in Ire­land’s win.

“I just ig­nored him walk­ing down the cor­ri­dor. He said ‘morn­ing’ with the big­gest grin I’ve ever seen in my life,”he smiled, ahead of Mon­day’s trip to Le­ices­ter.

“He won’t be play­ing for me for what he’s done to Wales! It was a great goal and great tech­nique on his right foot. Ob­vi­ously it was a goal that killed off our hopes and as­pi­ra­tions.”
