Darron Gibson was taken off due to injury

Everton midfielder Darron Gibson suffered suspected knee ligament damage during the first half of the Republic of Ireland's World Cup qualifier against Kazakhstan on Tuesday night.

The 25-year-old, back in the international fold after ending his self-imposed exile in the wake of Giovanni Trapattoni's departure last month, was hurt after landing awkwardly as he made a 35th-minute challenge at the Aviva Stadium.

He was treated on the pitch for several minutes with club manager Roberto Martinez watching from the stands, and was eventually carried off on a stretcher.

An FAI statement issued via its Twitter account said: "Darron Gibson has been assessed by our team doc and will return to his club tomorrow for a scan with suspected knee ligament damage."

Gibson, his club and Ireland will hope the damage is not serious with the player having only just recovered from injury.

ooray! We are all excited now, we beat a very mediocre team! With all due respect to WHU supporters, not winning that game shouldn't even be a consideration. This is the problem, there is no winning mentality at the Emirates - we're all congratulating ourselves beating a team that we have a winning record against.

s this meant to be an aspiration for United supporters? Moyes mediocrity strikes again. I see the Bayern boys don't want to sign for him, and his reputation amongst the senior European coaches make other key signings unlikely.
