Andros Townsend hopes to be handed the chance to shine for England so that he can repay the faith that Roy Hodgson has shown in him by selecting him for the two crucial World Cup qualifiers against Montenegro and Poland.

The 22 year old has been in sparkling form for Tottenham so far this season and could well have a major role to play for England as they look to secure their passage to Brazil.

Townsend has flourished for Spurs in the absence of Aaron Lennon and is finally having the chance to showcase his talent after spending much of his senior career on loan at lower league clubs.

After nine different loan spells, Tottenham boss Andre Villas-Boas has shown some faith in the young winger, as has England boss Hodgson who handed him his first call up to the senior squad for the qualifiers against Moldova and Ukraine.

Townsend may not have featured in either game but he insists that the experience filled him with confidence and he is desperate for a chance to show Hodgson what he can do.

"The first call-up was kind of like going there training for 10 days, and I got to know all the players," Townsend told the official Tottenham website. "Obviously I didn't get on but it was a valuable experience, so hopefully I can go there and try and make a bit more of an impact and try and get on the pitch.

"It just shows the trust that the manager has in me to put me in the squad. It's a vastly experienced squad; I think there's only me and Ross Barkley that are the only newcomers of the group, so it's great that he's shown the trust in me, and if I get the chance I hope to repay him."

England can secure qualification for next summer's finals in Brazil by securing two wins and Townsend believes that home advantage will be a key factor.

"You can see how good the fans were against Moldova (England's last home game) a few weeks ago, so obviously it's a big factor playing our last two games at home, and I'm sure we've got the quality in the squad to finish off the job," he added.

"It was nice to get my first call-up last month, it was a dream come true, but the second call-up shows more the way I've played since the last meet-up.

"Obviously I'm delighted (to be called up) again and hopefully I can go there and try and get my first cap this time."
