The whole country felt for James McClean after he gave this emotional interview to RTÉ last night

“Ah Tony, I don’t know what to say”

IT WAS HEARTBREAK in Dublin last night after Ireland went down to a disastrous 5-1 loss to Denmark at the Aviva Stadium.

Despite taking an early lead, Ireland were systematically undone and it was pretty painful to watch with World Cup qualification on the line.

One man who always wears his heart on his sleeve is James McClean – so when he was drafted in to speak live on RTÉ after the game you knew it was going to be emotional

Visibly upset, McClean tried to get out some thoughts on the performance:

RTÉ immediately shared the clip on Twitter and Facebook, and everyone got pretty emotional watching it

Heartbreaking stuff all round.
