Spurs winger Andros Townsend has admitted his shock at representing England twice over the last week.

Townsend was one of the stand out performer as England secured wins over Montenegro and Poland to secure a place at the World Cup in Brazil next summer.

“At the start of the season I could never have dreamed this, playing for my club regularly and getting my first two caps for England. It's been a dream come true really, but I can't let it get to my head, I've got to keep playing well and keep my head down,” he told the press.

New signing Erik Lamela says he’s got to work hard to adapt to life in the Premier League.

The Argentinean forward is keen to secure a place for himself in Argentina’s World Cup squad, stressing the need to change from an Italian style of football quickly.

“English football is much more physical than the Italian game, which is based more on tactics – I know I have to adapt as quickly as possible,” he told Clarin.
