Long has Euro vision as he edges closer to comeback

SHANE LONG was forced to take on a spectator's role for last night's Euro 2012 play-off against Estonia due to injury, but the West Brom man expects to be back in action soon.

"Another week or two and I might have made it. Hopefully I can get training tomorrow and see what it's like but I'm still a few days away from being right," said Long after last night's 1-1 draw with the Baltic nation.

"I may push it for Saturday, maybe get a few injections and see what happens.

"It was just great to qualify, it was a long time coming so I am looking forward -- hopefully -- to being a part of it next summer."
