Nabi on target in West Brom friendly loss

Tony Pulis handed James McClean his maiden outing in a West Brom shirt in Wednesday’s 3-1 defeat to Red Bull Salzburg as 20 other players also enjoyed run-outs.

McClean – West Brom’s only close-season signing so far – played 50 minutes of the defeat, with the Premier League side undone by two goals just before half-time.

The Austrian champions went in at the break 2-0 up thanks to Marco Djuricin and Jonathan Soriano, with Pulis opting to reshuffle his XI early in the second half.

Ten players were swapped – Stephane Sessegnon the only man to feature throughout – but Takumi Minamino added to Salzburg’s lead five minutes after the hour in Schladming with a powerful left-footed drive.

However, young striker Adil Nabi – who replaced Claudio Yacob 50 minutes in – made the most of his game time by pulling one back with a clever finish from a tight angle.

West Brom face MLS side Orlando City next in their preparations for next month’s Premier League opener against Manchester City.
