It’s been a year since Andros Townsend‘s fabulous form earned him a call-up to the England squad. He will be hoping to rekindle that form and get back to his best for Tottenham Hotspur and England.

The 23-year-old was very disappointed to have been left out of the Spurs’ squad last Saturday. He watched from the stands as his club demolished Queens Park Rangers, 4-0, at White Hart Lane. Townsend came on as a substitute in Tottenham’s opening day win at West Ham United, which Spurs went on to win 1-0. Since Townsend was the talk of English soccer, he had a very frustrating injury setback, which ruled the 23-year-old out of the FIFA World Cup in Brazil. Since the setback, Townsend has been working hard on his fitness to get back in to Tottenham’s starting eleven. Roy Hodgson has recently named Townsend in his squad for the upcoming friendly and UEFA EURO 2016 qualification game.

On his day, Townsend can worry any defense; he’s quick, dynamic and has an end product. The London-born Townsend has come on leaps and bounds since being loaned out to nine different clubs in his time at Tottenham. That proves that every manager in his time has shown faith in his ability and given him every chance of proving himself. Townsend had subsequently taken his chance and had turned himself into a vital part of Tottenham’s team before his injury.

New boss Mauricio Pochettino had endured a very successful time since his arrival at the Lane. Spurs made it four wins out of four for the Argentine, when his side saw off AEL Limassol (3-0) in the UEFA Europa League on Thursday. Pochettino will be looking to make it five out of five when they entertain Brendan RodgersLiverpool on Sunday in what promises to be a mouth-watering affair.
