PAULO Sousa was left to regret the day he promoted Antonio German to the QPR first-team after he denied his Swansea side a deserved victory on Saturday.
The youngster was given the chance to train with the senior squad when Sousa was in charge at Loftus Road .
And that decision came back to haunt the Portuguese as German came off the bench to snatch a point after Nathan Dyer's opener.
Sousa said: "Antonio was playing in the U17s and we started to push him to start training with us because players with his characteristics are special.
"When they are more prepared physically they can start to integrate with the first-team. It helps them to improve their level. He has good prospects for his future.
"He's got a lot of mobility and is left-footed, which for a striker is something different. He's always looking for a goal, and has a lot of intensity."
