Andre Villas-Boas hopes Andros Townsend will be handled better by England than previous Tottenham call-ups.


He added: "I'm not in a position to comment any further on any criteria and selection on why he does it. What I hope for is that, for such a big impact on a player, for the smile that he put on his face, for the future of Andros, hopefully we can see some continuity. "The only thing I'm reflecting is on a couple of examples from the past. In the end, Jake, Tom, were competing to get into the Tottenham team. They couldn't. And, in the end, their England call-ups disappeared. "So, I just hope that there is some foundation that can take these players to evolve in the future."
