Andros Townsend earned another call up to Roy Hodgson's England squad to host Slovenia for their Euro 2016 European Qualifier, and will also travel with the squad to Scotland for an international friendly.

Townsend toils

Townsend has struggled to secure a regular starting spot for Tottenham under Argentine head coach Mauricio Pochettino, but has found favour under Hodgson after missing the World Cup in Brazil over the summer.

The speedy winger came off the bench to score the pick of the goals in the recent 5-0 rout of minnows San Marino, and will hope to add to his five caps with the two internationals this month.

Spurs for England

Spurs are well represented in the youth levels of the England team, with Harry Kane, Alex Pritchard and Tom Carroll present again in the under-21 side, as the young lions host Portugal before travelling to France for high profile friendlies.

Defender Dominic Ball is in the U20 team for friendlies against Portugal and Canada, Harry Winks is with the U19s to play Italy, while Josh Onomah and Kyle Walker-Peters will join up with the U18s for their double header with Poland.


If Townsend can impress for England then there's every chance he could earn the opportunity to be given more a shot under Pochettino. To date he's been largely frozen out of the Spurs squad, and if he doesn't break into the starting XI soon a move away could be on the horizon.
