  • Chris Coleman defends Neil Taylor after leg-breaking tackle

The 0-0 World Cup qualifying draw in Dublin was marred by Ireland captain Coleman receiving oxygen and leaving the field on a stretcher after a wild lung from Taylor, who was sent off for the 69th-minute challenge.

"I asked if Seamus was listening to him and he said, "Yes, to be fair, he was".

The Republic of Ireland's John O'Shea says he was lucky to avoid a serious injury after a Gareth Bale challenge in the World Cup qualifier against Wales.

"I've had plenty of stitches put in there".

"He (Whelan) has given me assurances that he didn't mean it", Allen said of his club colleague. "They are the games you want to be involved in and be a part of".

The surgery on Seamus Coleman's broken leg has been a success, Republic of Ireland manager Martin O'Neill has confirmed.

Gareth Bale has been criticised by John O'Shea in the wake of the Real Madrid star's controversial challenge on the Republic of Ireland defender during Wales' draw in Dublin.

Speaking to BBC earlier today O'Neill said the procedure was successful although Coleman faces a lengthy spell on the sidelines.

"We've missed important players in the past and we've always said it's not a one-man team", Gunter said.

The Southampton striker's wife, Kayleagh, has revealed just what Long said to the stricken Coleman as he was receiving treatment. "I didn't think it was a yellow to be honest, but the referee's done it so what can I do?"

"I was trying to comfort him, he was in a lot of pain". Serbia now sit first in the group, level on points with second place Ireland.

"We'd like to have picked up a couple more points, but it's never easy to qualify".

Wales had enjoyed the better of the game without unduly troubling Ireland before they were reduced to 10 men, but the home side finished strongly with James McClean seeing a goal-bound shot deflected just wide. No-one ever wishes to see something like this happen to any player, much less one of our own.

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.
