All in all, it was a tough night at the Aviva.

It was an easy shift for both goalkeepers, with the game ending in a 0-0 draw but the big shock of the night was the devastating tackle on captain Seamus Coleman.

Martin O'Neill confirmed in a post-match interview with RTÉ that Coleman suffered a bad break, with Neil Taylor received an immediate red card.

However, the incident did showcase one positive thing - the bond between the players - as Shane Long rushed to comfort Coleman in the aftermath.

Wishing Coleman a speedy recovery!
