Long out of Ireland game

Long out of Ireland game

After picking up an ankle injury in Saturdays 2-1 defeat to Scunthorpe, Shane Long has been forced to withdraw from Ireland's glamour friendly with Argentina on Wednesday night.


The striker was injured whilst trying to follow up Simon Church's saved shot in the second half, and as we had used all 3 subs, he was forced to play for the final 20 minutes on the right wing doing nothing more than crossing the odd ball into the box.


He will be disappointed to miss out as the game marked the first international at the new Landsdowne Road.


Long's absence adds to a number of players not available for Wednesday nights trip to Torquay.
