James McClean

James McClean is a somewhat controversial figure. Although he was born in Northern Ireland, McClean opted to play for Eire, causing disdain among the Ulstermen.

A technically gifted player, McClean also has a short fuse. A red card would come as a surprise to no-one.

Will he help Germany to their first European Championship win for 20 years?
