Irish international and Everton star Seamus Coleman is to tie the knot with long-term girlfriend Rachel Cunningham.

It was a memorable day for the Donegal man as he proposed to his girlfriend of nine years fresh after scoring an outstanding individual goal in the 2-1 victory over Southampton at Goodison Park yesterday.

She took to Twitter to announce the proposal.

“Special news..Seamie jst proposed to me after 9 years. Cant believe it in so much shock and can't stop crying! Happiest girl in the world x”.

The Donegal man has been in sensational form on the field, his strike yesterday bringing his tally to five for the season, making the full-back the highest scoring defender in the league this season and has been linked to Arsenal in recent weeks in light of his eye-catching performances.

The former Sligo Rovers man has also cemented his place in the Irish team over the past 12 months, becoming one of the most consistent players in green including a man-of-the-match performance in the draw with England in Wembley last May.
