We followed Andros Townsend's every move in what turned out to be a dream, goalscoring debut for England against Montenegro on Friday night.

Andros takes on Drincic and KecojevicDelight after scoring

Andros was drafted in by Roy Hodgson for a key match in World Cup qualifying and the winger responded in style, taking the game to the opposition and eventually firing home a wonderful strike from 25 yards.

Andros also set-up the first goal in his 80-minute stint as England won 4-1.

The Three Lions will now qualify automatically for next summer's finals in Brazil with a win against Poland at Wembley on Tuesday.
