FIFA has opened proceedings against Neil Taylor following the Wales defender’s challenge on Republic of Ireland defender Seamus Coleman, Press Association Sport understands.

Everton defender Coleman needed surgery on a broken tibia and fibula after being injured in the 69th minute of Friday’s World Cup qualifying match at the Aviva Stadium, which finished in a goalless draw.

Coleman faces months on the sidelines and Taylor, who will definitely miss Wales’ next qualifier away to Serbia in June, faces the prospect of having his automatic one-match ban extended.
