There are some question marks surrounding the fitness of Shane Long for Ireland's next World Cup Qualifier against Austria.
The Tipperary man picked up a foot injury in Southampton's Premiere League game against Middlesbrough last week, while he was also sidelined for the clubs game with Manchester United on Sunday.
According to reports today, Long will be assessed and he should get a clearer indication as to how long the recovery period should be.
Just a few weeks ago, Long was named on Martin O'Neils 38 man squad for the international friendlies against Mexico and Uruguay
Should Long fail to make it - Kevin Doyle, David McGoldrick, Daryl Murphy, Jon Walters and Adam Rooney are all waiting on the wings ready to play.
