James McCarthy: Deadline-day move to Everton

James McCarthy: Deadline-day move to Everton

James McCarthy belatedly joined up with the Republic of Ireland squad on Tuesday morning after completing his deadline-day move to Everton.

The midfielder trained with his international colleagues at Malahide for the first time after being given permission to delay his arrival by manager Giovanni Trapattoni.

He was joined by West Brom striker Shane Long, who dashed back to England on Monday night as Hull attempted, ultimately in vain, to sign him.

Skipper Robbie Keane and defender Darren O'Dea both trained following their arrivals from America and Canada respectively, but Stoke defender Marc Wilson sat out once again as he nursed his ankle problem and keepers David Forde and Darren Randolph took no part in the game at the end of the session.

However, assistant manager Marco Tardelli is confident all three will be fit for Friday night's World Cup qualifier against Sweden.

t's a bloody good goal, though. Sh!t, the kid's gonna be the worlds best before we know it, isn't he? He's got the touch of genius in him. Like Neymar, but with muscles and stuff. He's doing a Ronaldo as we watch. He's bulked up to be able to ride the tackles, but he's improved technically as well. His touch is sublime. Bugger.
