Newport County AFC midfielder Jack Karadogan has been called up to the Wales Under-18 squad for their upcoming fixture against England.
The 17-year-old will link up with his international team-mates for a five-day camp later this month, with Wales taking on England in a friendly on Friday 3rd September.
It is the first time Karadogan, who has represented Wales’ younger age groups, has received a call up to the under-18 squad after it was recently re-launched to increase playing time for age-group international players.
The second-year scholar has enjoyed plenty of first-team exposure in recent weeks, having featured in County’s pre-season outings, including a second-half appearance against Cardiff City. He also found the net in the Exiles' 5-1 win over Undy Athletic last month.
The midfielder was then named on the bench for the Carabao Cup win over Ipswich Town at Portman Road, as the Exiles secured a second-round tie against Premier League side Southampton.
Newport County AFC Academy Manager Damien Broad said: "This is great news for the academy and Jack personally, and we are all delighted with his inclusion.
