Townsend says England will have learned from their defeat to Chile and he is hoping the Three Lions can bounce back against their old foes Germany on Tuesday.
"The Chile game was a good test for us, and hopefully we can do better in the Germany game." the Spurs winger said.
"The manager came in after the game and said to us: 'we did not get too carried away when we qualified for Brazil, so don't beat yourselves up tonight because there is another game again on Tuesday when we can put all the wrongs right against Germany'."
