Neil Taylor Gets Two-Game Ban For Red Card Tackle On Seamus Coleman

Neil Taylor Gets Two-Game Ban For Red Card Tackle On Seamus Coleman
By PJ Browne Updated

Wales left-back Neil Taylor has been given a two-game ban for his red card tackle on Seamus Coleman during last month's World Cup qualifier against Ireland in Dublin.

In the 69th minute of the 0-0 draw Taylor lunged in with a tackle which broke Seamus Coleman's leg. The Ireland captain will miss the remainder of his side's World Cup qualifying campaign and a substantial part of next season for Everton.

Taylor would normally have received an automatic one-game suspension for the red card. However, FIFA opened disciplinary proceedings against the 28-year-old a week following the game.

There had been some speculation that Taylor could have been handed a four-match ban. However, FIFA have decided on a far more lenient two games.

The two-game suspension means Taylor will miss the crucial games away to Serbia on June 11th and at home to Austria on September 2nd.
