Coleman horror injury mars Ireland-Wales draw

DIETMAR HAMANN took to Twitter to slam Gareth Bale for his risky tackle on John O'Shea that saw the Welsh superstar get a yellow card.

"He has realised everything that has happened and is obviously very disappointed", said O'Neill.

Asked when he thought the Irish captain might return to action, O'Neill, whose team have four World Cup qualifiers to play in the autumn, admitted that it was pretty much impossible to tell.

Ireland manager Martin O'Neill certainly did, and he'd know, claiming Coleman to be a phenomenal captain who is having a phenomenal season, both of which are true, but in the wake of his loss, who succeeds the Everton defender as Ireland captain?

Whether Taylor believed that his challenge was going to over-step the mark in that split-second, only the player himself will be able to answer, but by the time that the referee eventually got the correct decision by brandishing the red card, it was already too late.

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

It remains to be seen whether or not Coleman, who is still in hospital, will be able to play any further part in his country's bid to reach next summer's finals in Russian Federation with the reverse fixture against Wales bringing an end to the qualifying campaign in October.

I want my team to be the most attractive to play in the league. It is not an ultimatum but that is normal - that is business. That is a message for everybody".

"Even the doctors and surgeons wouldn't be terribly sure [when he will return]", O'Neill told BBC Radio Five live, per the Independent. I saw his reaction immediately and it didn't look good.

O'Shea opened verbal fire on Bale after he was on the end of a dangerously high tackle from Real Madrid star, which inflicted injuries that required internal and external stiches for the Sunderland defender.

"Every single game that you play you have to go and prove yourself".

"If I see it again, I'll apologise and say he's got it wrong". In the moment you can think, 'oh I can maybe win the ball... oh maybe I can't...

Ledley, who broke his leg just before the start of last year's European Championship finals - a tournament where Wales reached the last four - tweeted that anyone who thought he was laughing at Coleman "needs their heads testing".
