Long hopes Ireland can get on a roll

Published Add your comment

Shane Long believes his winning goal in the friendly against Bosnia-Herzegovina could be important in the long run as the Republic of Ireland head to their Euro 2012 training camp.

The West Brom striker's 78th-minute header secured a 1-0 win, and Sunday sees Giovanni Trapattoni's squad depart for their pre-tournament training camp in Montecatini, Italy.

Long said: "The gaffer put me on to get the winner and luckily I was on the end of a brilliant Aiden McGeady cross."
