Donegal's Seamus Coleman was back in action on Tuesday night.

The Republic of Ireland and Everton defended played for an hour for the Everton U23 side in a Premier League Cup Group F match with Portsmouth.

The Toffees won 3-0 - and Coleman impressed.

According to the Liverpool Echo, Coleman "produced almost an hour's worth of customary bursts down the flank alongside equally solid defending."

It also noted how "the 29-year-old also withstood a crunching tackle with Pompey’s Jes Bedford, with the youngster giving the Ireland captain a respectful pat on the head afterwards."

Coleman was substituted 13 minutes into the second half of a game watched by Everton boss Sam Allerdyce.

The game was shown on Everton TV, and you can see how Coleman got on by clicking the link below.

Coleman, who hails from Killybegs, suffered a horrific leg fracture in Ireland’s World Cup Qualifier against Wales last March, an injury that threatened to end his career.

But now Coleman is on the road to recovery.
