Teenager named in New Zealand squad
Turf Moor teenager Cameron Howieson has been called up by New Zealand for their Under-20 World Cup qualifying campaign next month.
The attacking midfielder, 18, has been included in a 20-man squad for the mini tournament in Fiji.
The Junior All Whites face Papua New Guinea, Vanuatu, New Caledonia and Fiji in a round-robin format with the group winners making it through to the summer’s finals in Turkey.
Howieson, who made his debut for the senior New Zealand side last summer and also represented the All Whites at the 2012 Olympic Games, will link up with the squad on 12 March ahead of the qualifiers which take place from 21-29 March.
