DONEGAL’S Seamus Coleman played a super sub role for Everton as the Merseysiders had a shock win over Manchester United at Goodison tonight.
The Killybegs man may have spent the first 80 minutes of the epic encounter on the bench.
But when boss David Moyes sent him on for Osman, he had just one instruction – to keep the ball for the home side.
And that’s what Coleman did; he was full of running and energy as he helped protect a 1-0 lead courtesy of Marouane Fellaini in the 57th minute – he rose highest to power home a header from a corner, taken by former United player and Derryman Darren Gibson.
As the visitors pressed for an equaliser, Anderson gave the ball away for Manchester United, and Coleman was able to bring the ball away and do a fine job for his side.
He carried the ball 60 yards up the pitch and then won a free-kick into the bargain. The crowd cheered as if he had scored.
