Coleman Impresses Against England


It was honours even in Wednesday evening’s contest between Phil Jagielka and Seamus Coleman as England drew 1-1 with Republic of Ireland at Wembley.

It was Coleman who provided a superb curling cross from the right which allowed Shane Long to head the visitors ahead after 13 minutes, a goal which was cancelled out by Frank Lampard’s equaliser 10 minutes later.

Coleman was outstanding throughout the 90 minutes for Giovanni Trapattoni's team, while Jagielka also completed the full match in central defence for the Three Lions.

A third Evertonian made an appearance in the second half as Leighton Baines replaced Ashley Cole at left-back for England 53 minutes into the game.

Baines had a sight of goal shortly after his introduction but he fired a 25-yard free-kick into the defensive wall.

Jagielka England

Earlier, England Under-19s defeated Scotland 3-0 with Tyias Browning keeping a clean sheet. Matt Kennedy was a second half substitute for the Scots.

Despite the comprehensive victory, Georgia’s 2-0 win over the host nation Belgium saw them top the group and progress to the Finals ahead of the Young Lions.
