Former Evertonian Wayne Rooney (@WayneRooney) led by the way by tweeting: "Hope seamus Coleman gets better soon. Horrible tackle."

Among the celebrities to express their support for Coleman was One Direction star Niall Horan (@NiallOfficial), who wrote: " Horrific what happened to Seamus Coleman tonight . Hope he recovers well".

And James Corden (@JKCorden) said: " Stay strong Seamus Coleman. Every true football fan wishes you a strong recovery x"
