The TV pundit was critical of the Ireland midfielder after the Sweden draw
Eamon Dunphy has launched scathing criticism of James McCarthy's performance after today's 1-1 draw against Sweden in the Euro 2016 opener.
In the RTE TV comments, the pundit made a withering assessment of the Everton player.
"It was a very brave performance and we improved a lot but we can’t go on with James McCarthy doing nothing in midfield. He strolls around like a traffic cop, pointing here and pointing there but doing nothing. He got his manager sacked at Everton this season. He is a waste of space, there is no other word for it," he said.
