Seamus Coleman suffers stress fracture on international duty

Everton’s injury woes continue as one man looks set to spend a significant amount of time on the sidelines following the international break.

According to a report by The Daily Mail, Seamus Coleman has suffered a stress fracture to one of his feet.

The full-back picked up the injury during the Republic of Ireland’s Nation’s League match against Wales, with his manager confirming to RTE Sport, via the Daily Mail, that the problem is a concern.

“Seamus went for a scan. He has a little stress fracture, which is a concern.”

This is just the latest setback to the Everton man after he recently only just made a return to action at Goodison Park following a ten-month spell on the sidelines with a broken leg.

Marco Silva will also be concerned that his current injury list continues to grow as they look to maintain their unbeaten start to the Premier League season.

Coleman joins a lengthy list that includes the likes of Yerry Mina, Andre Gomes, Theo Walcott, Phil Jagielka, Idrissa Gana Gueye, James McCarthy and Michael Keane.

The Verdict:

The stress fracture will be a devastating blow to Coleman as he would have been looking to get through a season without another injury.

Having just worked hard to make a return from the serious broken leg he suffered, whilst also on international duty, he would have been looking to make a real impact for Everton and help them achieve their aims.

It is unknown how long the Republic of Ireland international could be out for and Silva will certainly be hoping he can make a swift return.
