7 November 2012

Dominic included in England U19 squad

Under-21s striker Dominic Samuel is amongst four young Royals that have been called up for international duty.

Samuel, who has been training with the first team this week, has been in excellent form for the U21s and has earned a call up to England's U19 squad.

Dominic travelled to QPR with Brian McDermott's squad on Sunday and now has a chance to shine on the international scene as the Three Lions face Finland in Telford.

The match will wake place at AFC Telford United's New Bucks Stadium On Tuesday 13th November - for more information including ticket details click here.

Royals boss McDermott had some encouraging words for the striker, "He's is a real talent. He's allying his talent with his work rate - that's starting to happen now. He's really working hard - I saw him play against West Ham last week and he did really well.

"He's getting closer - and I'm sure the young lads see what happens at this club. You just have to look at Sean Morrison - he's played the last two games. They must think that they have an opportunity. We'll try and involve him with the first team how we can."
