Jack Robinson has club and country in mind as he prepares for an England Under 21 double-header.

Town’s on-loan QPR left-back missed out on Saturday’s Championship clash at Fulham, with boss Chris Powell plumping for Paul Dixon instead.

Now he’s hoping to add to his nine caps in the friendlies against Portugal at Burnley tomorrow night and France at Brest on Monday.

The former Liverpool man has next summer’s Euro Under 21 finals in the Czech Republic in his sights and he is also keen to impress both Powell and his parent club.

“I want to make sure I’m a part of things at QPR and that means doing the business for Huddersfield,” said Robinson, who was invited to make up the numbers for a senior England training session under Roy Hodgson at St George’s Park earlier this week.

 

“QPR want me to get games and experience, and whether it’s at club level or for the Under 21s, I want to be figuring.

“I’ve missed out on the last couple of Under 21 squads through illness and injury, so it’s great to be involved again.

“We have some tough games coming up, but it’s going to be tough at the Euros, so these matches will be a good gauge.

“There’s talk of (Manchester United left-back) Luke Shaw dropping back down to the Under 21s from the seniors for the finals, so I know I have it all to do to be a part of things.”

Tonight’s opponents Portugal, Italy and Sweden have been drawn alongside Gareth Southgate’s England in Group B.

Group A will consist of the Czech Republic, Germany, Denmark and Serbia.

Robinson, who has made 11 Town appearances, will be back with Chris Powell’s squad in time to prepare for the home Championship derby against Sheffield Wednesday a week on Saturday.
