Shane Long has been been named in the Republic of Ireland's latest provisional squad.

Martin O'Neill has named the Saints striker in his squad for Ireland's two World Cup qualifying fixtures next month.

O'Neill's men will face a trip to Georgia on September 2nd before hosting top-of-the-group Serbia in Dublin just three days later.

Long is among six strikers named in the provisional squad, which includes a first call for Preston North End's Sean Maguire.
