Andros Townsend has ambitions to be part of England Under-21 manager Stuart Pearce's plans for next summer's European Championships.

The 21-year-old Tottenham winger made his full debut for the side in the 2-0 win over Northern Ireland on Tuesday.

He told BBC Sport: "I just wanted to make an impression and put a thought in the manager's mind come the summer.

"I am a bit unfit but I showed glimpses of what I can do. Hopefully if I am given a chance I can impress further."

He added: "I was delighted to be given my first start. It's a real honour.

"I came up through the age groups at Under-16, Under-17 and Under-19 but went out of the picture for a few years.

"I'm delighted to be back, I love pulling on my country's shirt and I want to do it a few more times.

"It's all about what the manager thinks and hopefully he wants to see me in future squads."
