QPR striker Conor Washington has secured his place at Euro 2016 after Northern Ireland named their 23-man squad for next month's tournament on Saturday. 

The R’s forward will head to France in June following the confirmation that Irish manager Michael O’Neill has included him in his team for the competition.

The news comes following Northern Ireland’s 3-0 friendly win against Belarus on Friday evening in Belfast.

Washington scored for the Irish at Windsor Park, his second goal in three matches for Northern Ireland. 

“It’s incredible,” Washington exclusively told QPR PlayerHD. “To get this opportunity after coming into the squad so late is amazing. 

“As a young boy you dream about pitting yourself against the best players in the world. 

“I’m really looking forward to it now.”

 

 

Northern Ireland play their first Group C match against Poland on 12th June in Nice before facing Ukraine on 16th June in Lyon. Their final group match will be against Germany on 21st June in Paris.

 

Washington, who only made his international debut earlier this year, has three caps after qualifying through his grandparents. 

 

Their final friendly before the tournament begins takes place away to Slovakia on 4th June.
