​Southampton boss Hughes reveals Long facing injury stint

Mark Hughes has confirmed Southampton striker Shane Long will miss the international duty with Republic of Ireland due to injury.

The Saints' manager had to replace the forward during the second half of the 2-0 win at Selhurst Park on Saturday.

"He's done something to his foot," revealed Hughes.

"We haven't got to the bottom of it really and we aren't sure if he got a kick or came down on it but he's hobbling around and he's very likely to miss the internationals I think as we need to get to the bottom of the injury."
