Former postman Conor Washington is ready to deliver at this summer’s Euros.

Washington blasted onto Northern Ireland fans’ radar back in March when he scored on his second international appearance against Slovenia.

The QPR striker built on that impressive start with another goal in last week’s 3-0 win over Belarus.

It cemented the 24-year-old’s place in Michael O’Neill’s 23-man squad for France.

Washington’s confidence is on the rise, and now the Northern Ireland hitman is preparing for the country’s first-ever appearance at a European Championship finals.

“From where I’ve come from, it’s been a crazy ride up through the leagues,” Washington noted.

“There might be those niggling doubts of am I good enough to play at this level? Hopefully I’ve done enough to quash those worries.

“Football’s football at any level, if you’re good enough you’ll play and have an impact. I back myself 100 per cent of the time to have an effect on the game.”
