What a weak team.

Does Clinton not even manage a call up nowadays?

No, but in all fairness Stokes and Long have had better seasons. There is also Doyle and Keane ahead of him.

Stokes hasn't pulled up any trees at Sunderland and Long hasn't featured too much.

...seeing as Clint's partner has just recently had a baby, I reckon he's quite happy to sit this pointless set of friendlies out in order to focus on being a daddy.

Aren't they purposely playing youngsters? I thought I heard that a college footballer from the US played the other night (he had an Irish rabbit or insurance salesman or something...though I guess he could actually be irish)

Clinton is better than Stokes and Long. Bolivia have just equalised.

Correct, Joe Lapira. Irish mother according to wikipedia.

I'm just waiting for somebody to suggest we buy him in the transfer hotline - after all, young, presumably decent, presumably cheap...

Clinton is a better finisher than both of them. Wouldn't mind Long playing alongside him. Stokes doesn't really impress me.
