Ireland international Shane Duffy shares picture of injured foot post-op

Martin O’Neill’s plans for the Republic of Ireland’s upcoming World Cup qualifier against Wales were thrown into disarray this week with the news that first-choice centre back Shane Duffy suffered a broken metatarsal.

The 25-year-old Brighton defender was forced to undergo surgery to repair the fractured bone and he’ll be out for at least six weeks while he recovers.

However, despite the set-back, Duffy remains optmistic and the Derry native shared a photo of his freshly repaired foot this morning.


“Successful op this morning, all done!” wrote the former Everton and Blackburn Rovers man. “Thanks for all your support. [I] will be back in no time!”
