Tottenham winger Andros Townsend hoping to impact in Brazil

The young winger has vowed to rediscover his sparkling form from earlier this season as competition for places in England's World Cup squad intensifies.

Andros Townsend produced inspired performances in qualifying victories over Montenegro and Poland in October, his first two matches on the international stage.

Since then his season was stunted by a hamstring injury in December but the 22-year-old is eager to make up for his time on the sidelines and return to form for Tottenham in a bid to catch the attention of England manager Roy Hodgson, who will reveal his provisional 23-man squad on May 10.

"I want what happened to me at the qualifiers to be the start of something," he told the London Evening Standard.

"Nobody wants to be a one-hit wonder. It's all about longevity and I want more opportunities to play for England, especially at the World Cup."

"It would mean the world to me to go to Brazil. Every boy in the country dreams of playing at a World Cup and I'm no different."

Townsend faces stiff competition from Liverpool's Raheem Sterling and Arsenal winger Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain when it comes to making Hodgson's squad and the Tottenham man has a lot of admiration for his rivals.

"I have a lot of respect and admiration for them," he said. "We're good friends and have talked about the World Cup a bit. I'm pleased that they're doing well. Raheem has been on fire for Liverpool and Ox has been playing well for Arsenal."
