SEAMUS COLEMAN HAS been ruled out of the Republic of Ireland’s Euro 2016 qualifier against Germany in Dublin tomorrow.
Coleman injured a hamstring while playing for Everton against Chelsea three weeks ago and has not been able to train collectively since joining up with the Irish squad at Abbotstown on Monday.
Coleman has trained on his own, but has failed to shake off the injury and won’t be available for the visit of the World Champions, Germany, to the Aviva Stadium tomorrow evening.
“Seamus Coleman will not be playing in the game,” the Irish manager, Martin O’Neill, confirmed.
“He’s done very, very well. He was almost in contention for Everton but I think the week that he’s had will help him and he will be absolutely fine for Sunday.”
However, the Killybegs man will – ‘absolutely’, according to O’Neill – be available for Ireland’s final group game against Poland in Warsaw on Sunday.
