Andros Townsend is determined to take his Spurs form into the international arena if he gets his chance for England.

The winger has been called up to the senior squad for the first time for the World Cup qualifiers against Moldova at Wembley tonight and Ukraine in Kiev on Tuesday.

He will take his place on the bench at Wembley after Roy Hodgson named his starting line-up against Moldova. Kyle Walker starts while the third Spur on duty, Jermain Defoe, joins Andros amongst the substitutes.

Andros has been in flying form so far this season - form that earned his call-up.

“It’s a fantastic experience for me and a reward for my start to the season and the six months at QPR (last season),” said Andros before joining up with the squad.

“My intention is to keep playing the way I’m playing, without fear and try and get some game time.

“As you’ve seen, the manager has faith in the youngsters, so hopefully I’ll do well if I get a chance.”
