Everton defender Seamus Coleman captained his country to a 1-1 draw with Switzerland last night.

Republic of Ireland fans have slated Everton defender Seamus Coleman’s display for them against Switzerland.

Ireland actually picked up a 1-1 draw with the Swiss last night, which could aid their qualification chances.

Everton man Coleman captained his country on the night, but his performance came in for some criticism.

There are many Ireland fans who feel that the Everton right-back is not the same player since he picked up an injury last season.

And many Irish supporters suggest that the Everton captain is on the decline now.

Despite the harsh opinions on Coleman’s performance, he is still playing a key role for Marco Silva’s side.

Everton did bring in Djibril Sidibe over the summer to increase competition for places at right-back, but Coleman remains the Toffees first choice at the moment.

Coleman has one more game to play for Ireland over the coming international break, with Mick McCarthy’s side set to take on Bulgaria on Tuesday.
