Sample hero

Andros Townsend is determined to make sure his dream week is just the beginning.
The flying winger was magnificent in his first start of the campaign in last week's 5-0 win in our UEFA Europa League play-off, first leg.

He scored the opening goal and then set-up tap-ins for Paulinho and Roberto Soldado as we pressed home our advantage in Georgia.

That performance led to his first start in the Barclays Premier League for us against Swansea on Sunday.

Again, Andros rose to the occasion, always willing to take on full-back Ben Davies and working up and down the right flank in such a positive manner. 

That led to a free-kick that Nacer Chadli curled just wide and he was then brought down by Jonjo Shelvey, with the foul seemed outside the box, although replays suggested it should have been a penalty.

Andros hit a 25-yarder inches over before the key moment in the 58th minute when he drove into the box again and was upended by Shelvey again. This time the penalty was awarded - and Roberto made no mistake.

Just 48 hours later and Andros was called into the senior England squad for the first time.

"The first leg in Dinamo was definitely my big chance," he said.

"I’ve had to wait a while to get back into the starting XI at Spurs so I was determined to do well.

"Scoring the early goal settled me and the team down and then we started to play the way we know we can.

“That goal was important on the night because Tbilisi is a tough place to go, it stopped them getting any confidence together and gave us the platform to play our football.

"I think one of my main strengths is scoring goals from outside the box, I’m not sure I’ve actually scored from inside the area, a scruffy goal. But that is something I need to work on, being on the end of crosses when they are coming in from the left, it’s part of my game I can improve on.

“But that match has to be just the beginning for me and hopefully if I get more chances, I will show what I can do.”
