The flying winger - outstanding in our Tour matches against Malaysia and Sydney - has now joined up with the Three Lions for Sunday's friendly against the Republic of Ireland and the Euro 2016 qualifier against Slovenia on Sunday week (June 14).

Andros has three England goals to his name in seven caps and has scored in each of his last two international appearances - San Marino back in October and a belter to beat Gianluigi Buffon and secure a draw against Italy in March's friendly in Turin.

"The manager has showed confidence in me and every time I’ve pulled on that England shirt I’ve put in a positive performance and I’ve managed to score goals," said Andros.

"I always go to England with great confidence, try to play my game and know that if I train well enough, maybe I’ll get a run out in the game.

"The manager has always stayed true to that, he’s given me time off the bench and I’ve managed to deliver for him."

England top Group E in qualifying for France 2016 with five wins out of five but face a tough test against a Slovenia team currently second in the standings.

"We have to have the same mentality that we showed against Switzerland away, another difficult game but we went there, did a professional job and won 2-0," he added. "Of course, we have Republic of Ireland first and that will be a real test."
