Tottenham manager Andre Villas-Boas has criticised Roy Hodgson over his call-up of Andros Townsend to the England squad, fearing it will be a one-off and berating the Three Lions boss for a ‘lack of continuity’.
Midfielder Townsend, 21, has impressed in Spurs’ opening two Premier League games and bagged a fine goal in the Londoners’ Europa League thumping of Dinamo Tbilisi.
However, having spent the second half of last season on loan at relegated QPR, the speed at which he has forced his way into Hodgson’s squad for the upcoming World Cup qualifiers against Moldova and Ukraine has come as a surprise.
And Villas-Boas is concerned Townsend’s international career could go the way of Steven Caulker, Tom Huddlestone and Jake Livermore. Caulker and Huddlestone were called up for last year’s friendly in Sweden but they have not played since while Livermore has been discarded after just one cap.
