Left wing: Andros Townsend
Age now: 22
Age then: 26
Townsend received his first call-up to the senior England squad in September 2013, for the World Cup qualifiers against Moldova and Ukraine. He made his senior debut in the starting eleven against Montenegro on 11 October. He scored England's third goal against Montenegro and was awarded with the man of the match reward.
Townsend has become one of the biggest young names in not just EPL football, but European football because of his football for club and country. He was without a doubt England's best player against Germany and one of the best against Poland and Montenegro.
After many successful loan spells at QPR and other Championship clubs, Spurs manager Andrés Villas-Boas decided to give Townsend an opportunity in the Spurs' starting XI. Since he has gotten his opportunity, he has kept his spot ahead of Tottenham's new signing from Roma, Erik Lamela.
He is more of a right-midfield player because he loves to cut inside onto his left foot and release the powerful shot off his boot. But, I think he will still be an effective player on the left-hand side and by 2018, hopefully he'll be a much more experienced player and will be able to play on either side of the pitch. Also, you have to get the best players on the pitch so Walcott and Townsend have to both be on. Also in four years time, they could be a lethal wing partnership, maybe even now!
