Watch: James McClean Throws Brilliant Dig At Nathan Collins Over Grealish Tackle

Watch: James McClean Throws Brilliant Dig At Nathan Collins Over Grealish Tackle
By Gary Connaughton Updated

After a frantic start to the domestic season in England, many footballers are no doubt keen to meet up with their national teams for the upcoming international break.

Ireland players will be no exception to that, with those included in Stephen Kenny's squad always seeming to enjoy being part of the group.

There is certainly a good sense of camaraderie among the team, as can be seen during a recent clip put out by the FAI.

James McClean slags Nathan Collins over Jack Grealish red card

The squad met up in Dublin over the last couple of days ahead of the games against Scotland and Armenia, with the FAI releasing some behind the scene footage of them arriving on site.

It was all fairly standard stuff, although there was a hilarious moment between James McClean and Nathan Collins.

The Wolves defender was sent off during his club's game against Manchester City at the weekend for a high challenge on Jack Grealish, a decision he could have had few complaints about.

Collins seemed fairly upset about the incident at the time, although that didn't stop McClean from bringing it up.

After the pair greeted each other, the Wigan man was quick to slag off the 21-year old for the tackle and his reaction to it.

You can watch the moment at around 3:00 in the video below.

In the clip, McClean slags off Collins for his reaction to the tackle, going on to say 'just get off the pitch'. The Wolves man then replies 'I didn't mean to do it'.

While the Kildare native will be facing into a three-game ban when he returns to club duties, he is set to play a big part for Ireland in the upcoming games. He is all but certain to start both fixtures as long as he stays fit, with Norwich City defender Andrew Omobamidele withdrawing from the squad today due to injury.
