Kevin Moran: I would take an Ireland draw against Wales

Coleman had an operation on Saturday morning after he suffered a horrific injury following a horror tackle by Wales full-back Neil Taylor, who was red-carded.

The draw in Dublin meant the Republic missed out on returning to the top of Group D, after Serbia beat Georgia earlier on Friday, with Wales four points behind in third. There's a fine line about having that sort of protective arm around your team and your players.

Needless to say, Taylor received the straight red card from referee Nicola Rizzoli for his awful challenge. Five more remain, but unfortunately they may have to be played without Seamus Coleman. The team made the quarterfinals that year before losing to Brazil.

"The way he hits the ball, the movement he gets on the ball, you can't study that".

As if Evertonians needed any further reason to loathe the global break, Seamus Coleman and James McCarthy have been injured with Republic of Ireland.

Republic of Ireland footballer Séamus Coleman's career is in jeopardy after he sustained a horrendous injury following a tackle by Welsh footballer Neil Taylor.

United States spy agencies monitored Trump communications: Nunes
Manaford has come under scrutiny for work he's done for figures tied to Russian President Vladimir Putin. Trump's own communications were also intercepted and disseminated among USA intelligence agencies.

The injured bodyguard then pulls out his gun and, while lying on the floor, opens fire on the killer, who died later in hospital. Voronenkov had also spoken out against Russia's annexation of Crimea in March 2014, although he voted for the move at the time .

A James McClean volley seemed destined for the net, before being deflected just wide of the post.

Ireland pressed late on and despite a couple of nervy catches from Wayne Hennessey, 10-man Wales weathered the storm to take a point back to South Wales. "And you wouldn't call Wales out of it either".

Allen was one of few Wales players to stand out and he continues to be the star player of the World Cup qualifying campaign.

The referee will, however, have to put his hand up and admit that he was wrong not to send Gareth Bale off for his lunging, mistimed and high challenge on John O'Shea.

Ireland have sustained a number of separate injuries too, with Glenn Whelan, Jon Walters, John O'Shea, and James McCarthy have all returned to their clubs ahead of Tuesday's friendly with Iceland.
