Tottenham Hotspur winger Andros Townsend has spoken of his honour at representing England following his first start for the U21 national team.
Speaking after the 2-0 win against Northern Ireland U21’s Andros added: “I was delighted to be given my first start. It’s a real honour. I came up through the age groups at Under-16, Under-17 and Under-19 but went out of the picture for a few years. I’m delighted to be back, I love pulling on my country’s shirt and I want to do it a few more times!”
After 3 Premier League appearances for Tottenham this season the winger is also looking to build on those. “Any time I step on the pitch it’s all about getting fitness, confidence and showing people what I can do,” he continued. “Hopefully between now and the end of the season I will have more chances”.
“I’ve been learning to come inside and use my right foot and try and get goals on my weaker foot to make myself a bit unpredictable. I’ve got to work on that a bit more and
hopefully it can start coming off for me. I’ve got to keep
playing well when given the chance.”
