West Ham United midfielder Josh Cullen has earned huge praise for his performance for the Republic of Ireland last night.
West Ham youngster Cullen was handed his Ireland full debut yesterday, and he helped his nation to a 3-1 win.
The West Ham man won the Man of the Match award for Ireland, as they beat Bulgaria in a friendly.
And Ireland fans were very impressed by how Cullen handled the big occasion.

Really like Josh Cullen, so busy and constantly pushing the tempo, James Collins looks like he has something to offer at the moment too! Unit.— Tommy Rooney (@TomasORuanaidh) September 10, 2019
Cullen is yet to really make the breakthrough at West Ham, with other options preferred to him in midfield.
The likes of Mark Noble, Declan Rice and Jack Wilshere are ahead of him in the pecking order at the London Stadium.
However, the 23-year-old must be forcing his way into Manuel Pellegrini’s mind with his performances now.
Cullen has impressed on a loan spell with Charlton Athletic and the West Ham man is now proving he can also perform on the international stage.
