Dan Potts is relishing his return to the international stage as England Under-19s prepare to take on Turkey at AFC Telford United on Thursday night.

The 18-year-old defender wil be hoping to earn a second cap at U19 level after recently recovering from a head injury to make a successful return to the Hammers' Development Squad.

His last involvement with England came in November as the Young Lions defeated Finland and now he wants a similar result as Noel Blake's side warm up for the UEFA U19 Championship Elite Qualifying Round in May.

He said: "We came away with the win that night [against Finland] and those are the sort of games that we might come up against in these Euro Championships and, at the end of the day, it's a win.

"We dominated the chances and possession, even though they had good spells in the game before we scored the late penalty through [Everton midfielder] John Lundstram. In a qualifier or tournament, that's the most important thing so it was pleasing to get a victory.

"I've found international football a little bit different to what we're used to with our clubs - you get times when you play against countries who are happy to dig in and put in terrific work-rate off the ball and try to play on the counter attack.

"But we've got a good squad and there's a lot of talent in there so it's up to us to break that down."

For fans living in the Telford area, tickets are still available by calling 01952 640 064, priced £3 Adults and £1 Concessions.

Also hoping for international action on Thursday is Northern Ireland's Jamie Harney, whose UEFA U17 Championship Elite Round qualifying campaign begins with a meeting with mini-group hosts the Netherlands in Uden this evening. Kick-off is at 6pm UK time.

Northern Ireland will follow that with fixtures against Italy and Norway, with all four nations battling for a place at this summer's finals in Slovakia.
