Andros Townsend made his full England debut tonight against Montenegro and had a game to remember as he bagged a decent goal and picked up the man of the match award.
It’s been donkey’s since England had a decent natural left footed winger, many have tried and failed and then Downing was meant to be the man to answer the call and he held down the left spot for a few years but only because he was all we had.
Is Andros now the man to finally fill the role of England’s left winger? He has all the attributes, skill, pace, shooting, crossing and he can beat a man without too much trouble.
Townsend looks like a good old-fashioned winger and tonight England looked a lot more balanced having that outlet on the left who could make something happen.
Tonight as we see at Spurs Townsend played on the right, some managers prefer that as the wide man is able to cut inside for a shot but it can be a problem if they can’t cross with their weaker foot. Andros tonight showed he also has a right foot so he may prove to be a valuable member of the England squad for many years.
Great debut Andros, glad you’re a yid!
