Seamus Coleman to have surgery today on double leg break

Although the high-stakes Group D clash between Republic of Ireland and Wales looked promising on paper, it is not a match that will remain engraved on the memory of those in attendance in Dublin.

The Republic of Ireland right-back suffered a double break of his right leg in a tackle with Wales' Neil Taylor during the World Cup qualifier in Dublin. Seconds before Taylor's brutal lunge on Coleman, Gareth Bale was yellow carded for a studs-up tackle on John O'Shea.

Ben Davies plays wing back for 1 of the best teams in the premiership! That won't change in the summer.

"If things are getting a bit sloppy around the place, we'll be told, that's what it's all about, even the likes of John O'Shea who has been there and done it".

Bale, who has scored four goals in this campaign, has not missed a competitive global since October 2013 - having featured in 21 successive competitive matches.

"In the moment of a game it's a battle, it's two teams going at it, nation v nation".

"It's five games gone, we're exactly halfway".

"We're going to miss him, I'm not going to try to deflect from that. We've got to remember that and stay positive".

Coleman, who has impressed this season at club level for Ronald Koeman's Everton, remains in hospital recovering from the injury.

Coleman, 28, who was captaining the Irish side, was attended to immediately by medical staff before being stretchered off the field and provided with oxygen.

The Salvadoran national, Tommy Vladim Alvarado-Ventura, 31, pleaded not guilty in a Hempstead, New York courtroom on Thursday. Around 4:15 a.m. his girlfriend arrived from work, noticed the injuries to her daughter and confronted Alvarado-Ventura.

"Get well soon, Seamus".

"I know him as well as anyone and I think everyone is disappointed, and from Seamus' point of view it doesn't look great".

"I'm not complaining, it was a typical British game of football". They have not beaten Ireland since February 1992.

The Wales manager continued his defence of Villa defender Taylor.

"He's numb; he didn't say a word", Coleman said, via the Telegraph. "He hasn't said a word". They've been good to me and I feel that when I've been playing I've been good for them, so we fit now and leaving when my last game was the one where I broke my leg never felt completely right.

"From where I was sitting, he had to go for the ball", Coleman said.

The Southampton striker's wife, Kayleagh, has revealed just what Long said to the stricken Coleman as he was receiving treatment.

"He's absolutely devastated. That doesn't make it any easier for Seamus or the Republic of Ireland, of course".

"I have never really been in the situation where I have had to defend anything like this".
