The Toffees full back suffered an injury during his side's clash with Southampton on January 21 which may rule him out of Ireland's upcoming friendly international in February

Everton defender Seamus Coleman may be forced to miss out on Ireland's forthcoming friendly international with Poland, according to reports.

The 24-year-old full back suffered a thigh injury during the Toffees' 0-0 draw against Southampton and is expected to be ruled out of action for three weeks after undergoing a scan on the muscle, according to the Irish Independent.

Giovanni Trapattoni had named Coleman in his squad for the clash against Poland on February 6, but the former Sligo Rovers defender may be forced to withdraw from the squad due to his injury.

Meanwhile, Ireland's chances of hosting games at Euro 2020 have been handed a boost after Uefa deemed that host cities must house an airport that possesses at least two terminals.

According to the Irish Examiner, the European governing body is keen on airports with at least two terminals in order to ensure that air travel and security will not become issues during the course of the tournament.

The competition is expected to involve 13 cities around Europe and the Football Association of Ireland (FAI) is reportedly keen to make a bid to host games after the Aviva Stadium played host to the Europa League final in 2011.
