James McClean has never shied away from having a pop at England and he was up to his old tricks ahead of their Euro 2020 clash against Germany on Tuesday.

It will come as little surprise that the Republic of Ireland winger is cheering on any team playing England in this summer's big football festival and he confirmed as much with his latest Instagram post.

Posing in a full Germany kit ahead of the last-16 clash at Wembley, McClean attracted a familiar stream of abuse from England fans.

Of course, those fans had the last laugh as England beat Germany 2-0 to reach the Euro 2020 quarter-finals and they have now been installed as the new tournament favourites.

We will wait to see whether McClean will now order a Ukraine kit to pose in on Instagram ahead of their quarter-final against England on Saturday.
