Shane Long: Has been recalled by Giovanni Trapattoni

Shane Long: Has been recalled by Giovanni Trapattoni

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 Premier League victory over Southampton last night, Long has been confirmed in the 23-man party for the game at the Aviva Stadium next Wednesday evening.

Skipper Robbie Keane has not been asked to make the long trip from Los Angeles for the friendly, which could see Norwich's Wes Hoolahan win just his second cap more than four years after his first.

Trapattoni has also placed four men - Andy Keogh, Conor Clifford, Shane Duffy and Damien Delaney - on stand-by as he assesses his options in the wake of last month's demoralising 6-1 World Cup qualifier defeat by Germany and the face-saving 4-1 win over the Faroe Islands four days later.

Squad: Keiren Westwood (Sunderland), David Forde (Millwall), Darren Randolph (Motherwell); Seamus Coleman (Everton), John O'Shea (Sunderland), Darren O'Dea (Toronto), Stephen Kelly (Fulham), Paul McShane (Hull), Stephen Ward (Wolves), Ciaran Clark (Aston Villa); Keith Andrews (Bolton), James McCarthy (Wigan), Keith Fahey (Birmingham), David Meyler (Sunderland), Glenn Whelan (Stoke), Aiden McGeady (Spartak Moscow), James McClean (Sunderland), Robbie Brady (Manchester United), Wes Hoolahan; (Norwich), Kevin Doyle (Wolves), Simon Cox (Nottingham Forest), Jon Walters (Stoke), Shane Long (West Brom).

Stand-by: Andy Keogh (Millwall), Conor Clifford (Chelsea), Shane Duffy (Everton), Damien Delaney (Crystal Palace).

may well get slated by other United fans for this, but out of the three contenders, I'd far prefer Liverpool to win the title. Yes some elements of their fanbase can be a bit OTT, yes they're our biggest rivals and yes it will make our poor season feel even more like the end of an era (Fergie's gone, Liverpool are back on top). However I just have to applaud Brendan Rodgers and the way he's turned Liverpool around in just a couple of seasons. It...

Please Stop Telling Us What To Think

ooray! We are all excited now, we beat a very mediocre team! With all due respect to WHU supporters, not winning that game shouldn't even be a consideration. This is the problem, there is no winning mentality at the Emirates - we're all congratulating ourselves beating a team that we have a winning record against.

s this meant to be an aspiration for United supporters? Moyes mediocrity strikes again. I see the Bayern boys don't want to sign for him, and his reputation amongst the senior European coaches make other key signings unlikely.
