Andros Townsend is backing his young Tottenham teammates to join him in the England squad.

Townsend has been a revelation for club and country this season.

"At Spurs, too, there are players like Harry Kane, who did well when he came on against Hull in the Capital One Cup, and Tom Carroll. He is on loan at QPR but whenever he's played for Spurs, he's been one of the better players," Townsend told the London Evening Standard.

"Without a doubt, they can follow the same path as me. Roy Hodgson has spoken very highly of Tom, and he and Harry can reach the senior England side. If I can be an inspiration to them, that's fantastic."
