Armenian midfielder Edgar Babayan, 19, who plays his club football at Randers FC (Denmark), was recently invited to the Danish U21 national squad.

Armenian reporter Vera Martirosyan spoke with Babayan, and below is an excerpt from this interview.

Did you expect this invitation?

I got an invitation, but I can only train with the team, for now. I don’t have a Danish passport yet. The coach said has long-term plans with me. I should have played since the U18, but it’s very difficult to get a passport here [in Denmark]. I’ll get it this December. Once I get it, I’ll immediately join the Danish [national] youth squad.

How did Randers respond to this invitation?

Ever since when I was still 17 years old, Randers have always received many [telephone] calls from the Danish [football] federation. Now, I’m one step away from playing in the [Danish national youth] team.
