Coleman Starts But No Guarantee On McCarthy For World Cup Qualifier With Wales

Martin O’Neill appears cautious about starting James McCarthy in tomorrow night’s World Cup qualifier with Wales.

The Everton midfielder only returned to training yesterday, after working through a hamstring injury.

McCarthy trained again today, but O’Neill can’t guarantee him a starting place at the Aviva.


Meanwhile O’Neill has confirmed that Seamus Coleman will start the game.

The manager was also asked how they will deal with Gareth Bale but says he would not be divulging his plans to the press.
