Watch: Worrying Scenes As Shane Long Limps Out Of The San Siro

For Irish football fans, this is extremely bleak.

Just as the second half kicked off in Milan, with Southampton drawing 0-0 with Inter, Shane Long went down under an innocuous challenge with Brazilian defender Miranda, and he did not look happy.

Replays showed that it was not the challenge that directly caused Long's problem, but a hamstring injury occurred at some stage and the Tipperary man's face suggested it was a bad one.


Get well soon, Shane.

With a crucial qualifier away to Austria coming up next month, Long will face a race to be fit for that squad and even then will surely be lacking match fitness if he is. On the list of things Ireland needed heading to Vienna, a Shane Long injury was very, very low down.

So unfortunate. Hopefully it's not as bad as Long thought it was initially and he makes a quick recovery. We'll keep our fingers crossed.
