Ireland right to call up Long - Hodgson

West Brom manager Roy Hodgson says he is not concerned that Ireland have called injured striker Shane Long into their squad for the Euro 2012 play-off.

Despite the Baggies medical staff claiming earlier in the week he would be out for six weeks with a knee injury that he suffered in the win against Aston Villa last weekend.

The former Liverpool boss also says he was pleased to hear that Villa's Chris Herd won his appeal against the red card he received in the match.
