Seamus Coleman out of Poland friendly…10/09/2018

A foot injury has ruled Seamus Coleman out of the Ireland team to face Poland in tomorrow evening’s friendly contest in Wroclaw. David Meyler, who joined manager Martin O’Neill at this afternoon’s press conference, is expected to wear the armband tomorrow night.

There was also some ‘fun and games’ surrounding the public release of a whatsapp audio purporting to have come from Stephen Ward who left the squad yesterday with a foot injury. The audio outlines details of the exchanges between Assistant Manager Roy Keane and players Harry Arter and Jon Walters which were alleged to have occurred during the summer internationals.
