Leyton Orient winger Sandro Semedo has linked up with the Portugal under-21 team today to take part in a training camp with his national side.

The 20-year-old revealed the news late last night and expressed his delight at earning a call-up for his country.

Semedo has been a regular in the O’s starting XI this season and shown flashes of his obvious potential.

At times the Portuguese youngster has struggled for form, but this call-up is reward for his hard work.
