QPR striker Conor Washington says he must improve his club form before dreaming about a potential place in next year's World Cup.

The striker is part of the Northern Ireland squad who face a double-header with Switzerland for a place in football's showpiece event in Russia, but says that improving his goal-scoring record in west London has to be the priority.

“I say it a lot but it’s not clichéd for me when I say this is a boyhood dream for me.

“The other strikers in the Northern Ireland squad are playing week in, week out, so my aim has to be to match them in that respect.

“I know I will only get into that squad on the back of good performances for QPR so that’s where my focus is.”
