Townsend has been a revelation for club and country this season.
“There is loads of talent in this country,” Townsend told the London Evening Standard. “Look at recent England squads, with players like Daniel Sturridge, Danny Welbeck, Tom Cleverley, me, Ross Barkley, Jack Wilshere.
“I don’t agree with people who say there isn’t enough coming through. It’s just a question of giving them a chance to perform at the highest level."
