The Entire Country Of Ireland Was Outraged After Neil Taylor Receives Just A Two-Game Ban

DUBLIN, IRELAND - MARCH 24: Players react as Neil Taylor of Wales (3) is shown a red card by referee Nicola Rizzoli and is sent off after a challenge on Seamus Coleman of the Republic of Ireland (2) during the FIFA 2018 World Cup Qualifier between Republic of Ireland and Wales at Aviva Stadium on March 24, 2017 in Dublin, Ireland.

Ireland sit in second position in Group D, behind leaders Serbia on goal difference, as they continue on the road to Russia 2018. However, they will more than likely have to complete the qualification journey without captain and talisman, Seamus Colemen.

The Everton fullback suffered a broken leg due to a dangerous challenge from Neil Taylor. In what was a fiery game, the Swansea City star took things overboard with a rash challenge.

Today, it was announced that he will serve a two-game ban, which means he will be free to play when the two sides meet against in October.

The whole of Ireland was up in arms that the ban was not longer.
