Seamus Coleman, Bale, Ireland, Wales

Bad news for Everton fans as Seamus Coleman suffers suspected broken leg

Coleman worry

Everton were dealt a major blow on Friday night as full-back Seamus Coleman had to be stretchered off the field during Wales’ World Cup qualifier against Ireland.

After a horror challenge from Aston Villa’s Neil Taylor Coleman has a suspected broken leg, although that is yet to be confirmed.

Should that be the case, Ronald Koeman may be without Coleman for the remainder of the season.

Taylor’s challenge was so violent that television producers decided against showing replays of the incident due to its graphic nature.

The match finished 0-0 but everyone’s main concern was Coleman’s injury.

Wales campaign in jeopardy

Chris Coleman’s side seemed to choke in what was an almost must-win match for the Welsh.

Next up for the Dragon’s is a crucial World Cup qualifier away to Serbia in June. Neil Taylor will miss that game after tonight’s red card, and perhaps more importantly, so will Gareth Bale.

The Real Madrid star will serve a suspension after picking up another yellow card in Friday’s match.

Serbia lead Group G, tied on 11 points with Ireland. Wales are four points behind in third.
