"We knew whatever goes on behind the scenes, the fans always come here to support us," the Republic of Ireland captain told Sky Sports.

“They got behind us from minute one to minute 90, and they pushed us over the line. I think our performance showed that as well.

“I’ve been here 12 years, you’ve got to take the good with the bad. Sometimes they’re on your back, sometimes they’re not.

"But for 90 minutes, they support you. And when Demi [Demarai Gray] got his unbelievable goal at the end you could see the reaction."

Coleman, 33, also took responsibility for the Toffees' 4-1 loss to Liverpool in their previous game. Mohamed Salah capitalised on a loose touch by the Irish defender to score and effectively seal the win.

"The Liverpool game, I took responsibility — I feel like we were getting back in the game, I made a mistake, but I’ve been around long enough to take the ups and the downs.

“You can’t get too high, you can’t get too low and whatever bit of criticism you get, you’ve got to take it on the chin because that’s part and parcel of football.

"You come in the next day, you work hard, and your luck eventually turns, and thankfully, Demi helped us over the line tonight.”
