Young Royals striker, Danny Loader, has been called up once again to England U18s as they're set to take part in the upcoming four-team Panda Cup in China.

The Royals' forward won the U17 World Cup with his country earlier in the season and has since made the seamless transition to U18 level.

The Young Lions will be playing three matches in this tournament - against China, Uruguay and Hungary in Chengdu.

It'll be a tough schedule for Neil Dewsnip's side, with three games in five days to be played - but another invaluable experience for Loader nonetheless, after his trip to India with England in the winter.

Loader is one of a 19-man squad to be flying over to China, representing the Royals' Academy along the way.
