Everton's Seamus Coleman Gave Us The Best Premier League Moment You May Have Missed Over The Weekend
Seamus Coleman was just an 18-year-old lad from Donegal when he joined Everton from Sligo Rovers for £60,000 in 2009. Since then, he has developed into one of the Premier League's finest right backs, amassing 321 senior appearances for the club to go with 56 international caps for the Republic of Ireland.
After the departure of Phil Jagielka last summer, Coleman was named club captain, an honor he also earned for his home country.

In the space of four days coinciding with the club’s start to the 2020-21 season, you could say that PSG has reverted to an even lesser version of its old self.
Players who deliberately cough at opponents or referees can be shown red or yellow cards under new guidelines issued by England's Football Association (FA) amid the COVID-19 pandemic.
The instructions to referees taking charge of games when COVID-19 restrictions are in place will come into force immediately and be applied at all levels of the game.
Atlanta United is not only having trouble with its senior team after getting embarrassed at the MLS Is Back Tournament and splitting ways with Frank de Boer — there's now been a hilarious blunder by the reserve side.
Atlanta United 2 (real original) captured its first victory in USL play after five attempts with an intense 4-3 victory against Miami FC.
Apart from Zinedine Zidane’s masterful headbutt on Marco Materazzi, the most infamous foul in 21st century World Cup finals is certainly Nigel de Jong’s hatchet man kung fu kick into the chest of Xabi Alonso.
It should’ve been a straight red — even referee Howard Webb admitted as much later — but it takes some cojones to effectively end the World Cup final after only 28 minutes.
