Samuel given Under-19s call-up


Reading academy striker Dominic Samuel has been called up to the England Under-19 squad.

Seventeen-year-old Samuel will join up with the Young Lions to take part in the Limoges Tournament – a round robin competition involving France, Portugal and Ukraine.

Jordan Obita was also picked for the squad, but had to withdraw due to injury.

Reading’s academy manager Eamonn Dolan said the call-ups show the club in a positive light.

“These call-ups are good for the academy, the club and the player,” he told the clubs official website.
