FIFA will cover the cost of Seamus Coleman’s wages while he recovers from his horror injury.

The Ireland captain suffered a double leg fracture on Friday night, and could be out of action until the start of next year.

Under FIFA’s club protection programme, the world governing body will compensate Everton for his salary, which is believed to be over 55 thousand euro a week.


Meanwhile Martin O’Neill says a number of players will likely make their international debuts in tomorrow night’s international friendly between the Republic of Ireland and Iceland.

Robbie Brady will captain the side tomorrow in the absence of Coleman and a number of other senior players.
