Long grabs 4 in another friendly win

Long grabs 4 in another friendly win

With Brendan Rodgers appearing to prefer Simon Church as his loan striker, Shane Long fired a timely reminder to his new manager.

Long started upfront in a 4-3-3 formation and grabbed two goals in each half as the Royals ran riot in Sweden again.

Rodgers gave a run out to those that didn't play on Thursday night, and the side again had a mix of youth and experience. David Mooney and Gylfi Siggurdsson could both have added to the scoreline but we had to settle for just the four goals.

Our final match of this years tour of Sweden takes place on Tuesday against Qviding FIF.

Line Up - Hamer, Karacan, Bikey, Pearce (Gunnarsson), Armstrong, Mooney, Siggurdsson, Matejovsky, Henry, Bignall (N.Hunt), Long.
