James McClean Sees Red After Picking Two Yellows In Four Minutes

James McClean was sent off in the 83rd minute of Ireland's scoreless Nations League draw with Wales on Sunday afternoon.

The Derryman was shown two yellow cards in four minutes by Greek referee Tasos Sidiropoulos.

McClean picked his first yellow in the 79th minute when he stood on the heel of Wales right-back Connor Roberts.

His second yellow card was less unlucky. It was handed out after lunging tackle on Ethan Ampadu.
