As Andros Townsend faces more pressure from those calling for Erik Lamela to take his place at in the Tottenham starting line up, the winger is focusing on the full England side. With two crucial qualifiers coming up, the 22 year old is hoping to get a run out either against Montenegro tonight or at home to Poland next Tuesday.
“The first call-up was kind of like going there training for 10 days, and I got to know all the players,” Townsend said.
“Obviously I didn’t get on but it was a valuable experience, so hopefully I can go there and try and make a bit more of an impact and try and get on the pitch.”
The player also went on to suggest that this latest call up acknowledges an improvement in his play since he first joined up with the national squad.
“It was nice to get my first call-up last month, it was a dream come true, but the second call-up shows more the way I’ve played since the last meet-up,” he added.
“Obviously I’m delighted again and hopefully I can go there and try and get my first cap this time.”
It would be interesting from a Spurs perspective for Andros to get a run out in either of these two games and a good performance could make it harder for Andre Villas-Boas to leave him out of the side when we return to league action.
