Shane Long hugging Seamus Coleman is just an incredibly touching moment

That is an expensive bloody point.

The Republic of Ireland have drawn 0-0 at home with Wales but, a night that struck the right notes early on with the tributes to the late Ryan McBride, finished on a sour note as captain Seamus Coleman suffered an horrific injury.

The Everton full-back appeared to badly break his leg following a reckless, red card tackle from Neil Taylor.

With the 28-year-old lying stricken on the Aviva Stadium turf, his team-mate Shane Long came over and gave him a hug.

This moment just summed up how horrific and serious the challenge was.

It also shows the incredible level of comradery and companionship which exists in this Irish squad.

It seems everyone in the whole country were just outraged at the reckless tackle.
