‘Next Monday he will play like Maldini’ – Many fans react to Newcastle player int’l display

OPINION

Ciaran Clark came off the bench at half-time for Ireland on Monday night but could not help them earn the result they needed for automatic qualification for Euro 2020. Ireland drew 1-1 against Denmark with Wolves’ Mat Doherty scoring a late equaliser for the Irish before they failed to grab a much-needed winner. Clark’s been in impressive form for Newcastle United but it would be fair to say that fans on Twitter gave a mixed reaction to the centre-back’s performance at the Aviva Stadium in Dublin. Clark was slammed for his sloppy use of possession while one fan even claimed that a cardboard cut-out of Paul McGrath would be better than him in the defence. It’s very harsh and it is understandable that there would be a lot of criticism after a disappointing result. Clark’s doing well for Newcastle at the moment and that is all what the Toon Army will care about.
