Coleman delight at qualifying for Euros

Coleman Everton thirdEverton right back Seamus Coleman says he is delighted at helping the Republic of Ireland qualify for the European Championships in France next summer.

The Irish beat Bosnia 2-0 last night to win their play-off tie 3-1 on aggregate and Coleman can’t wait to get to play in a major tournament.

“You grow up wanting to be in these tournaments and now I can’t wait”, he told the official site.

“From day one, we’ve all believed we can get there. We have had a few difficult moments along the way but what a feeling now – I haven’t experienced anything like that playing for my country.

“In the changing room, when the manager spoke to us, it was an amazing feeling. When you are long gone and retired, these are the moments that you will remember.

“Hopefully I will be in the 23 when we go there [to Euro 2016]. It’s an amazing feeling.”
