James McClean: Roy Keane's criticism was right

The Republic of Ireland squad has been gearing up for Euro 2016 at Fota Island in Cork.

Our videographer Dan Linehan was on hand to grab a word with a few members of the squad as they spoke to the media today.

James McClean said he has no problem with Roy Keane's criticism of the team after their performance against Belarus.

Seamus Coleman believes Ireland have a great chance of competing at Euro 2016 and said Ireland's team spirit will be key to Ireland progressing at the tournament.

The Everton full-back also addressed the potential threat of Belgian striker Romalu Lukaku and Sweden star Zlatan Ibrahimovic who will both face Ireland at the tournament.

Wes Hoolahan had praise for the training facilities in Cork and said that relegation with Norwich this season will not affect his confidence in France.
