Donkin Heads to Asian U19 Championships

8 October 2018

Academy midfielder Will Donkin has been selected by Chinese Taipei for the AFC U19 Championships later this month.

The 17-year-old has won eight full caps for his country since debuting last year, and has now been called up for the tournament which takes place in Indonesia between 18th October and 4th November.

16 teams have qualified, with Chinese Taipei drawn in the same group as the hosts, the United Arab Emirates and Qatar. Their first game kicks off the competition on Thursday 18th December, before they face the UAE three days later, before the group stages ends against Qatar on 24th October.

The four semi-finalists will qualify for the FIFA U19 World Cup, which takes place in Poland next year.
