Townsend nails down England right wing spot.

Posted on November 20, 2013 by Guest Writer

If England need a player to excite and terrify opposition defences then their man is Andros Townsend, yet again he donned the england shirt and took the fight to the opposition at every opportunity and to back him up and run past him and add his own brand of pace was Kyle Walker. Every time that they play down the right in the England team and for Tottenham then so does their understanding and ability to break down the opposition improve. With more than ten years at the top and their best years some way ahead of them England might just have the a wonderful partnership blooming.

Andros Townsend just seems to get better and better with each international appearance and seems perfectly suited to football on the big stage, football supporters in Brazil are going to love his style and ability in Brazil if he can maintain the form he is showing and there is every reason to expect that he will improve under the tutelage of Andre Villas Boas.

The underrated Kyle Walker surely England's best rightback.

Many supporters still seem to have have doubts about the ability of Kyle Walker to defend and yet he was as always immense,  rarely troubled even when up against the German speedster Reus and once he had seen him off the next German speed merchant and Chelsea summer purchase Schurrle, his speed always manages to get him out of trouble and yet he still found time to drive forward time and time again especially in the second half.

This German squad is full of quality and yet the crowd was kept entertained and held belief of an England result right up until the final whistle, the pace and enthusiasm and considerable skill of this young England  group led by the swashbuckling Townsend does give hope for the future, Rooney seems to have a new lease of life and Lallana is a good new addition.

A good few of the old guard must be thinking that their time is almost up as a new breed begin to make their mark, Theo Walcott is little more than two years older than Townsend but what a contrast there is between the two, both have pace to spare but whereas Townsend is direct and causes defences to panic, Walcott too often seems to make things happen and then just as quickly bring moves to an end by running out of ideas and slowing things down. The team that finished tonight’s game must have had an average age of no more than 24 years, whilst they lacked some experience the enthusiasm and will to get back into the game was exciting to watch. Perhaps an exciting new era is beckoning for England and Andros Townsend seems to have been one of the players that has lit the blue touch paper encouraged by a brave Roy Hodgson decision to choose him for a couple of vital World cup qualifiers.

It is almost certain that many thought the form of Townsend was a flash in the pan and a good proportion will probably still believe that to be the case, I have to admit that I had doubts but his form is so consistent that i am beginning to actually believe that Tottenham might have another true star about to break out, if the goals that his efforts deserve start to flow then his confidence levels will also increase, so when you consider that he is already a super confident player you begin to wonder what he might achieve.

When in full flow, as was so often the case this evening, Townsend is almost unplayable, even Germany, one of the best teams in world football, were constantly troubled by his directness. He is a marked man as he is now considered a danger to every defence, Gareth Bale experienced the same attention and he ultimately found a way to overcome tactics to prevent him causing havoc, townsend now has to turn his form into assists for his Tottenham teammates and he needs to start adding goals to his record.

Tottenham face Manchester City away on Sunday and the big open spaces of the Etihad should suit him perfectly, his England form now needs to be taken a step further in the Premiership and starting on Sunday.
