Shane Long has been omitted from the upcoming international versus Austria after failing to recover from the hamstring strain he suffered in the Europa League last month.
Long had been managing an ongoing muscular issue before he finally succumbed to the injury and was forced to spend time on the sidelines after pulling up when trying to chase down a ball against Inter Milan. Southampton have been reluctant to put a specific timeline on his return, but Long is almost certain to miss the trip to Hull on Sunday after he failed to make Ireland's provisional 35-man squad for the World Cup Qualifier in Vienna. Long has struggled to nail down a regular starting place in the Premier League this season and given the form of Charlie Austin and Nathan Redmond plus the return to fitness of Jay Rodriguez and Sofiane Boufal the 29-year-old could find his first-team opportunities limited even further.
