McClean, Sean St Ledger and Glenn Whelan will miss Ireland's World Cup
qualifier at home to Germany on Friday, manager Giovanni Trapattoni said
Trapattoni told a
news conference that Sunderland winger McClean, who has a hip strain,
may also miss the away game against the Faroe Islands game on October 16.
Ledger and Whelan, who like McClean (pictured) were part of Ireland's Euro 2012
squad, underwent scans on Monday and have been ruled out of both
matches, the Football Association of Ireland (FAI) said in a statement.
Aston Villa utility player Ciaran Clark has been called into the squad.
