Irish player Seamus Coleman breaks leg in half following risky tackle

27 March, 2017, 00:55 | Author: Felix Jensen

The Football Association of Ireland confirmed later that Coleman had broken his right leg and the Republic captain is expected to undergo surgery on Saturday.

It has been a disastrous week for Aston Villa defender Neil Taylor.

"He's in bits to be honest", Allen said. "Tayls is one of my best mates and he's a great guy".

There's no problem getting a hard tackle - but if it's late, it's a different story. "There was no malice in the tackle and he certainly wouldn't have meant to hurt anyone". I saw his reaction immediately and it didn't look good.

"You don't want to see anything nasty or sinister", Taylor's global manager said, perhaps revealing that even in this noble attempt to defend his player as all managers feel they must, he was attempting to defend the indefensible.

Elsewhere, many failed to make a real impact and that included Real Madrid star Gareth Bale who will be disappointed with his performance, and indeed the fact he was booked, resulting in a suspension for the tricky trip to Serbia in the summer.

"From where I was sitting, he had to go for the ball", Coleman said. The fact that the television match director chose not to show a replay of the incident tells you everything you need to know.

O'Neill added: "I've seen the challenge, I've seen the challenge (Gareth Bale's) on John O'Shea and they are very poor challenges". At the time I thought I was caught by an elbow.

Republic of Ireland will be by far the happier of the teams leaving the pitch, although Wales did well to take a point home after going down to 10 men.

"We're going to miss him, I'm not going to try to deflect from that".

"It's a devastating blow for the lad, he was having a phenomenal season at his club and a phenomenal season for us as captain".

"We've got some points on the board which is great, but again, we have to go and prove ourselves".

With only the top team in each group guaranteed to qualify for next year's tournament in Russian Federation, it means Wales desperately need to get back to winning ways at the Aviva Stadium.

So all things considered, as Ireland look at the table at the half-way stage, they must be quite content as they sit joint top with Serbia, unbeaten and with 11 points on the board.
