Oxford United goalkeeper in New Zealand squad
12:43pm Tuesday 22nd January 2013 in Sport
Max Crocombe has been included in the extended New Zealand Under 20 World Cup qualifying squad.
The 19-year-old, who has not yet played for United's first-team, is in the 26-man squad for the Oceania Football Confederation tournament.
New Zealand will cut the list to 20 players before the competition, which will be held in Fiji in March.
If successful they will go through to the FIFA Under 20 World Cup, which begins in Turkey in June.
Crocombe said: "I am really pleased and proud to get the call up.
"There is a lot of work still to do before the final 20 is announced but it is exciting news and something I am really looking forward to."
