Long on Eagles Cup-tie

The goalkeeper on Cup exploits...

7 January 2022

George Long will start in goal for Millwall on Saturday afternoon.

The stopper, who joined The Lions from Hull City in the summer of 2021, has featured in the club's three Carabao Cup fixtures in 2021/22, but will now get his chance to show his skills in front of a worldwide audience on ITV.

"It's been a good week," the 28-year-old told "We're at The Den [on Thursday] to train on and get acquainted with the pitch again. There's a good feel around the place and a bit of excitement."

When asked how he found out he would be starting the fixture between the sticks, Long added: "It was quite a simple one, to be fair! The manager pulled me after training and told me that I would be starting on Saturday, to enjoy it and to take my chance."
