With only two weeks until the European Championship play-off with Bosnia, Ireland manager Martin O'Neill will be anxiously keeping tabs on the well-being of Everton's Seamus Coleman.
Roberto Martinez said today a "major question mark" hangs over the Donegal native ahead of Sunday's Premier League clash with Sunderland after the full-back reported having a stomach bug.
The Toffees boss confirmed that Coleman has lost weight as a result of the virus, but has not ruled him out of the fixture just yet.
Ireland will travel away to Bosnia for the first leg on Friday the 8th before hosting the return fixture three days later at the Aviva Stadium.
