(Reuters) – Experienced Ireland striker Shane Long will miss his side’s crucial World Cup qualifier against Wales in Cardiff on Monday due to a hip injury, the team said. The Irish, who can secure second spot in Group D and a playoff spot with victory over Wales, must cope without the 30-year-old Long, who played against Moldova on Friday and has won more than 70 international caps.
