Republic of Ireland fans have slated Southampton striker Shane Long’s performance for them against Denmark.
Ireland drew 0-0 with Denmark yesterday, but Long rarely showed much during the contest.
The Southampton front man drew yet another blank, as his country failed to show much threat.
Ireland only managed three shots all night, and Long’s performance was heavily criticised on social media website Twitter.

Long’s goalscoring form for Southampton and Ireland has been poor for the last two years.
The hard-working forward seems to have lost the knack of scoring, and that must be worrying for Mark Hughes.
Southampton are heavily reliant on Danny Ings for their goals, and Long is showing very few signs of being able to take some of that responsibility off the former Burnley man.
