Republic of Ireland captain Seamus Coleman is due to undergo surgery on Saturday as he faces a lengthy spell on the sidelines.

Press Association Sport understands the 28-year-old Everton full-back suffered a double fracture of his lower right leg during Friday night's 0-0 World Cup qualifier draw with Wales at the Aviva Stadium in Dublin.

Coleman was hurt in a challenge by Wales wing-back Neil Taylor, who was sent off as a result, 69 minutes into a stormy affair.

He was treated at length on the pitch and was given oxygen as he was comforted by team-mate Shane Long, and eventually left on a stretcher.

Coleman was taken straight to St Vincent's University Hospital in the city, where he was due to have screws inserted to help repair the damage on Saturday.
