Gino Delays Call Up

U's forward available to face Dons

2 October 2017

Oxford United forward Gino van Kessel will be available for Saturday's home game against AFC Wimbledon.

Gino was called up by Curaçao for their friendly match against Qatar on October 10th and originally scheduled to miss United's Sky Bet League 1 match against the Dons at the weekend.

However Gino, who has scored 7 times in his previous 17 internationals, asked permission from the Curaçao FA to be available for the league game before flying out on Saturday night to join the squad ahead of  their game on Tuesday night, and that request has been granted. 

It means that he is available for Oxford's Tuesday night Checkatrade Trophy game at home to Brighton as well as Saturday's game.

United will  be without Canice Carroll for both games however due to his call up for the Republic of Ireland under 19 squad who have three European Championship games, starting against Azerbaijan this Wednesday.
