Seamus Coleman is set to miss Ireland's World Cup qualifier opener against Serbia on 5 September after suffering an ankle injury during pre-season.
Coleman, who captained Ireland at Euro 2016, arrived at Goodison Park for the Toffees' Premier League meeting with Tottenham on Saturday with a protective boot on his left ankle.
The Donegal native played 90 minutes of the Toffees' final pre-season match against Espanyol at Goodison Park last Saturday, so the injury is likely to have happened in the last week as manager Ronald Koeman put his players through their final paces at Finch Farm ahead of the new season.
"The manager has confirmed Seamus Coleman will be out for several weeks'," an tweet on Everton's Twitter account read.
"We’re disappointed Romelu [Lukaku] can’t start today and Seamus will be out for several weeks."
