A lot of people questioned Andros Townsend being called up to the latest England squad, but while it’s true that he’s not in the best form for Spurs, it’s hard to argue that he hasn’t delivered for his country.
There are plenty of players who have been great for their clubs who never managed to translate their form to the international stage – some with over 100 caps – but for now Townsend has the opposite problem. Here’s how Twitter reacted to him scoring the equaliser for England against Italy tonight.

3 – All three of Andros Townsend's goals for England have come from outside the box. Rocket.
