John Egan looks to be a major injury doubt for the Republic of Ireland’s world cup qualifiers next month.
The Sheffield United defender was stretchered off with his right leg in a brace, in the closing stages of his side’s 3-0 defeat to West Ham last night.
Ireland begin their qualifying campaign away to Serbia on March 24th, before facing Luxembourg three days later, with a friendly against Qatar to follow.
His manager Chris Wilder said the injury “does not look good”, and the centre back will have a scan today to reveal the extent of the damage.
