BEN Davis has been called-up to Thailand's senior squad.

The young midfielder made his Oxford United debut in last night’s Papa John’s Trophy defeat to Stevenage and is now celebrating a milestone for his country.

Davis will join up with the Thailand squad for their away game in Mongolia later this month.

“I am so proud to be part of the national team,” he told United’s official website.

“It’s quite complicated getting to the game with international travel but I can’t wait to go and it will be a fantastic experience.”

The 20-year-old joined United from Fulham on transfer deadline day, signing a two-year deal.

He has had to wait for his first-team chance, but came on for James Henry in the 74th minute against Stevenage.

Davis added: “The result definitely wasn’t what we were after, but it was great to be part of the squad for the first time.

“Hopefully I get more chances when I get back, but whether it’s with Oxford or Thailand all I can do is train hard, keep working on my game and give it my all every day.”

Davis was born in Phuket, Thailand, and moved to Singapore as a child, representing the latter at Under 16 and Under 19 level.

Aged 18, he had his application to defer national service denied by Singapore’s ministry of defence.

Davis chose to represent Thailand and has since played for their Under 23 side.
