Everton boss Ronald Koeman makes vow to Seamus Coleman after horrific injury

Republic of Ireland captain Seamus Coleman had surgery on his broken leg on Saturday following a horror tackle by Wales's Neil Taylor in Friday's goalless World Cup qualifying draw in Dublin.

The Everton defender is fighting for his top flight career after suffering a double break of his right leg in an x-rated challenge from Wales' Neil Taylor on Friday night.

As if Evertonians needed any further reason to loathe the worldwide break, Seamus Coleman and James McCarthy have been injured with Republic of Ireland. Seamus will face a lengthy recovery period and we will support him throughout this.

"I know Neil Taylor, and I know he definitely didn't mean it, of course he didn't".

Just before Taylor was sent off, Bale was shown a yellow card that will keep him from playing at Serbia in the next round of qualifiers in June.

Asked if Bale's challenge had been late, O'Shea replied: "Maybe, but thankfully I'm walking away from it, which is no problem".

"Your boys are not coming off there with halos on their heads".

"He is loved by everyone, he's obviously a great player and he is going to be a big loss".




Speaking to BBC Radio Five Live, the Derryman said the surgeons were pleased with how the operation went.

"When I saw it back, yes, I was a little bit annoyed". "We created some good chances and we were unlucky not to get a goal".

"I'm not complaining about that". I've only seen it in real time when it happened and I didn't see a lot.

His absence comes at a hard time for third-placed Wales who are four points adrift of Serbia and the Republic of Ireland at the halfway stage, having drawn four of their five matches in Group D.

Martin O'Neill's side pushed for a late victor but had to settle for a point, which keeps them in second place in Group D four points ahead of Wales after five games.

"In the second half I thought we controlled the game very well, " Bale said.

Manager Martin O'Neill said previous results won't count for anything.

Wales will be disappointed in the way they handled the clash having played into the physical game plan of the boys in green. Wales' fourth Group D draw in a row leaves them four points behind leaders Serbia. I would have taken that (at the start of the group).
