Shane Long to start vs Sweden

Republic of Ireland manager Giovanni Trapattoni has named his side ahead of tomorrow's World Cup qualifier against Sweden.

As expected, Paul Green has been named in the centre of the Ireland midfield where he will partner Glen Whelan.

Millwall goalkeeper David Forde will start in goal behind a defence of Seamus Coleman, Marc Wilson, John O'Shea and Ciaran Clark.

There remains a slight doubt over Robbie Brady but the Hull City winger is expected to line-out on the right wing, with James McClean on the other flank.

In attack Ireland captain Robbie Keane will be partnered by Shane Long.
