The Everton full-back, 28, suffered tibia and fibula fractures in his right leg following a bad challenge from Neil Taylor, who was given a red card.

Ireland will host Wales on Friday in a 2018 World Cup qualifier.

All the momentum in this group is on our side and with that wonderful Irish crowd behind them, Martin O'Neill and his players should be confident of getting a result against the Welsh.

Needless to say, Taylor received the straight red card from referee Nicola Rizzoli for his disgusting challenge. Buffon made a single save during the match, his 168th match for the national side, as Italy are tied with Spain on 13 points in Group G. However, Spain are on top owing to the goal difference.

The Aston Villa defender wasn't the only Wales player being criticised either.

John Delaney said he is disappointed with Seamus Coleman's injury and he also paid respects to Derry's Ryan Mc Bride.

Senior Israeli official denies Trump restrictions on 'settlements'
On the one hand, Susser said, there was "the clear-cut pursuit of state interests" while on the other it led to Islamism. Trump has expressed some ambivalence about a two-state solution, the mainstay of US policy for the past two decades.

National Football League announces changes to speed up the pace of games
As most fans remember from the replacement referee days of 2012, the league and the union don't always see eye-to-eye on matters. According to the NFL's research, these occur 27% of the time. "Who's in the replay room?" one source asked PFT this morning.

Gareth Bale managed to create the best chance with an oustanding shot from outside the box, but the ball dropped just wide of Darren Randolph's post.

"Of course, Neil is devastated himself".

The bottom part of Coleman's leg was left dangling, visibly broken.

James McClean nearly made the most of the extra man shortly after the dismissal but his shot was deflected just wide of Wayne Hennessey's post. Shortly after, Wales came back and Gareth Bale's long-range effort came within millimetres of hitting the top corner.

Wales launched their bid to reach a first World Cup since 1958 with a breezy 4-0 home win over Moldova, but they have since run into trouble.

But, while O'Neill will be missing those five players for Tuesday's friendly against Iceland, Robbie Brady is available after serving a ban against Wales. It makes me sick, and it's just another example of how these idiots will always make lame, irrational excuses to defend their favourite players.
