James McClean is determined not to be a one-hit wonder after making his senior international debut for the Republic of Ireland.

The Sunderland winger got his big chance as a late substitute in Wednesday night's 1-1 friendly draw with the Czech Republic in Dublin after manager Giovanni Trapattoni finally answered the clamour for the 22-year-old's inclusion.

Trapattoni's loyalty to the squad means McClean's chances of going to Euro 2012 are slim, but the 22-year-old is determined to add to his first cap. He said: "You want to try to get as many caps as possible for your country, and I am just over the moon to get my first one. But at the same time, I want to push on and in the future, maybe get into more squads."
