John Egan is taking inspiration from club-mate James McClean as he makes his way in international football.

The 19-year-old Sunderland defender made his debut for Ireland Under-21s in their 2-1 friendly defeat to Denmark last Monday, and will hope for another chance as they take on Italy with three precious Euro 2013 qualification points at stake.

But as the under-21s go about their business at Sligo's Showgrounds, McClean will be on duty with the senior side in Hungary as Giovanni Trapattoni's men continue their preparations for the Euro 2012 finals in Poland and Ukraine. Egan said: "It gives all the young players hope."
