Hector Kyprianou has been called up by Cyprus under-19s for their UEFA European Championship qualifiers over the next nine days.

The young Cypriot side will compete in a group with Italy, Slovakia and Malta at two grounds in Italy between the city of Bologna and the border with San Marino.

Kyprianou, who made his senior Leyton Orient debut in the Leasing.com Trophy game against Brighton & Hove Albion under-21s last week, will look to be involved in the three matches, which start with the game against Slovakia tomorrow, kicking off at 11am at the Stadio Tullo Morgagni in Forli.

Saturday sees Cyprus face Italy at the Stadio Valentino Mazzola, home of Santarcangelo Calcio, and they will finish their series of games against Malta at the same ground next Tuesday.
