ORIENT midfielder Jason Demetriou was hoping to get his first taste of World Cup action with Cypus tonight (Wednesday).

The youngster travelled with the Cypriot team to Montenegro on Tuesday in a 21-man squad for their latest World Cup qualifier.

Demetriou, who has been with Angelos Anastasiadis' side for the past week, was not involved in Saturday's 2-1 defeat by the Republic of Ireland, a result that ended their hopes of qualifying for next year's finals.

ALSO on international duty this week was on-loan winger Andros Townsend.
