Created on 07 Oct., 2012 6:37 AM GMT

Republic of Ireland winger James McClean is unlikely to feature against Germany in the World Cup qualifier between the nations.

The 23-year-old reported a very tight groin following Sunderland's 3-0 loss to Manchester City in the English Premier League on Saturday.

McClean will undergo a medical on Monday to determine whether he will be fit to make an appearance against Joachim Loew's side on October 12.

Team-mate Sean St Ledger is also unlikely to feature after suffering a suspected hamstring injury while playing for Leicester City in their Championship win over Bristol City.
