The Seamus Coleman news we’ve all been waiting for has finally arrived…
Having suffered a horrific leg break during Ireland’s World Cup qualifier with Wales back in March of 2017, there was a huge amount of concern for the future of Seamus Coleman’s footballing career.
However, consistent reports had suggested that the Irish international’s recovery was going as well as could possibly be expected and, speaking at Everton’s AGM on Tuesday evening, Sam Allardyce and technical director Steve Walsh announced that the 29-year-old right back has now returned to full training.

With Ireland’s hopes of a 2018 World Cup now a distant memory after a tragic playoff against Denmark, Coleman will have to wait to pull on the green shirt in a competitive fixture once again.
However, when the Euro 2020 campaign does eventually commence, you can be sure that the highly rated defender will be the first name on the Irish teamsheet.
Seamus, you’ve been sorely missed.
