Shane Long appears to be fit and ready to face Moldova and Wales in Ireland's final two World Cup qualifying matches after training fully with this team-mates today.

The Southampton striker had sat out training for the previous two days as a precaution after suffering a dead leg.

Long's return to fitness will be a huge boost to Martin O'Neill who has beefed up his attacking options for these two pivotal games by retaining Sean Maguire, Scott Hogan and Aiden O'Brien in his final squad.

All 30 Irish players trained today at FAI HQ although Friday's game will likely come too early for Everton midfielder James McCarthy while Robbie Brady and James McClean will sit the sold-out Aviva clash out through suspension.
