The City forward, who qualifies due to his Belfast-born grandmother, has been included in the party for the European Under-21 Championship qualifier with Cyprus.
"I still can't believe it really. I was absolutely delighted when I heard I was going to Cyprus," he told the Western Morning News.
"I was surprised! I just thought that because it was my first time there and it was a big game, I didn't think they would have picked me.
"The quality was much higher than I was expecting and it was like training with the first team really."
