Your international career has to come to an end at some time. You can't keep getting selected especially if you move to a league as poor as League 2.

Slightly strange interview. Says he is not retiring because of his body. He says he is as fit as ever.
He seemed peeved to be left out of the last squad.  Wouldn't surprise me if he comes out of retirement.

I must admit to being emotional seeing James comig off tonight. He is a credit to his family, Creggan and Derry City. As a Derryman to see one of our own pulling on the green shirt for over 100 caps was thrilling. I will never forget his pride in playing for his country and no doubt in years to come many a pint will be bought in Derry to the ol boys regaling stories about James McClean. I wish him all the best for the future. A top man.

I've been critical of some of his performances but never doubted his commitment, determination and passion in green. Congratulations James and Goodnight Vienna.....

His goal in Cardiff to beat Wales was one of my favourite moments watching Ireland in the flesh. Will never forget Vienna either. Thanks for the memories James

Always gave 100%, and stuck to his principles off the pitch. We won’t see too many like him again. A model-pro and a great human-being. Thanks Jamesie, all the best ClapClapClap

He gave us two of the great away days in Vienna and Cardiff, and for that I'll always be very grateful. Great servant, he'll be missed. I've a feeling we could well see him in the away stand in future mind

Back in June of 2017, my twin sons had the opportunity to accompany the Ireland team on to the field at Met Life Stadium for a friendly against Mexico. My one son was paired with David McGoldrick, who was very chatty and smiling the whole time.  My other son walked out with James, who wore the captain's armband that night.  He was all business, stern look and all.  He asked my son one question, "Do you root for Ireland?". " Yes",  my son said, "They're my favorite team."  The slightest grin and a nod from James, "Good lad."
All the best, James.  Class act.

All things must pass. The James McClean era might be over but the legend will live on. One of the Magnificent Seven with 100 or more international caps to his name and a player who has absolutely deserved all the plaudits he has been getting. Fit enough still to extend his playing career for another few years.

Looks pretty sharp tonight. 

I have no doubt he'd be the first lad to say yes if the new manager asked him to come out of retirement if we were badly stuck.

I'm not advocacting for his return either but it's lovely to see him do well and it's a decent move for him  Clap
