Long gets Ireland recall

Published Add your comment

West Brom striker Shane Long has been included in the Republic of Ireland squad for next week's friendly against Greece after proving his fitness.

The 25-year-old was not selected by manager Giovanni Trapattoni when he announced his provisional squad last week as he recovered from a hamstring problem.

However, having played 71 minutes of his club's 2-0 Barclays Premier League victory over Southampton on Monday night, Long has been confirmed in the 23-man party for the game at the Aviva Stadium next Wednesday evening.
