A frustrated James McClean took to Twitter to reveal his feelings after being overlooked in Ireland's 2-1 win over KazakhstanSunderland winger James McClean revealed his frustration at being left on the bench during Ireland's opening World Cup 2014 qualifier, as the Boys in Green came back to snatch a late win against Kazakhstan.
Robbie Keane and Kevin Doyle helped seal the win but Derry-born McClean was clearly disappointed at playing no part in the fixture.
McClean posted on his Twitter page: "Delighted as a fan we got the the win.. Personal level #fuming #f**kinjoke #embarrassing."
The 23-year-old midfielder was left on the bench as Giovanni Trapattoni sent on Shane Long and Doyle in the second half, with Long, Simon Cox, and Jon Walters all getting game time ahead of McClean on the wing.
His post was retweeted over 1,000 times from fans and disgruntled supporters, but was quickly removed from the social networking website.
