Reaction As James McClean Saves Ireland's Bacon Against Moldova

Two James McClean goals have spared the Republic of Ireland's blushes against Moldova as they managed to win their second World Cup qualifier match despite a performance that was well below par at times. The Republic went ahead with a goal from Shane Long following a delightful through ball from Wes Hoolahan but an error from Shane Duffy allowed Moldova back into the game.

Reaction to Ireland's performance for  most of the second half was, to say the least, fairly negative.


But the disappointment turned into relief when McClean popped up to put Ireland one, then two goals ahead - with his second goal resulting from yet more great play from Hoolahan.

Man of the Match was Wes Hoolahan. God knows we'll need him to stay fit if we keep playing like this for the rest of the campaign.
