Everton’s Seamus Coleman set to make international return against Turkey

Everton right-back Seamus Coleman has been re-called into the Republic of Ireland squad almost a year after surgery on a double leg-break.

The Ireland captain returns to the squad to face Turkey later this month in an international friendly.

Coleman sustained the serious injury while playing for the Republic against Wales during a World Cup Qualifier in Dublin last March.

The Everton full-back suffered tibia and fibula fractures in his right leg following a bad challenge from Neil Taylor, who was given a red card for the tackle.

The Irishman played the full 90 minutes in Everton’s 2-0 win over Brighton yesterday as he continues his return to full fitness.

The 29-year-old made his Everton comeback in late January against Leicester City, and is now set for an international return in Antalya on March the 23rd.
