Wales' Taylor given two-game ban for leg-breaking tackle on Coleman

Neil Taylor sent off

Wales defender Neil Taylor has been suspended for two matches for his leg-breaking tackle on the Republic of Ireland captain Seamus Coleman.

Taylor, 28, was sent off for the tackle during Wales’ goalless World Cup qualifier[1] in Dublin in March.

He will be banned for Wales’ next two qualifiers against Serbia in June and Austria in September.

Everton full-back Coleman is expected to face a long lay-off having had surgery on his fibula and tibia.

The 28-year-old’s club manager, Ronald Koeman, and captain, Phil Jagielka, visited him[2] at his home in the Republic of Ireland.

The Republic are second in Group D, level on points with leaders Serbia and four ahead of Wales in third.
