True to his word, James McClean did exactly what he said he was going to do against Poland. He told the media during the week that if the opportunity arose, he would put in a "crunching" tackle to get the crowd going.
Sometimes a good crunching tackle is almost like a goal, it gets the crowd going. Make no mistake about it, if there’s a chance there to go through someone, I’m going to take it.
That’s just my game. I’m a committed player and if that’s the case, then I’ll be happy to oblige.
Entering play as a second half substitute, McClean nailed Arkadiusz Milik with a challenge. It was a moment which lifted the Aviva.
