Long and Keane to lead the line for Ireland against England

Ireland face Roy Hodgson’s Three Lions in a much-anticipated international friendly.

GIOVANNI TRAPATTONI HAS tasked Robbie Keane and Shane Long with firing Ireland to a famous win at Wembley tomorrow night.

Ireland face Roy Hodgson’s Three Lions in a much-anticipated international friendly in London.

Jon Walters will likely feature on the wing while James McCarthy partners Glenn Whelan in the centre of midfield.

Like in-form skipper Robbie Keane, Aiden McGeady trained with the squad for the first time today but the Spartak Moscow winger did enough to earn a jersey.

Ireland XI: Forde; Coleman, O’Shea, St Ledger, Kelly; Walters, McCarthy, Whelan, McGeady; Long, Keane.
