Tottenham Hotspur morning news: Townsend on England, Dembele demands improvements

Andros Townsend

A round up of news stories this morning about Tottenham Hotspur.

Andros Townsend says the margin of England’s 5-0 win against San Marino last night doesn’t matter.

The Tottenham winger bagged a goal in the comfortable Euro 2016 win for his country.

“The main thing was that we got the three points. We're hoping not to win the group on goal difference, we're hoping to win it by two or three points, so two, three, four, five tonight doesn't really matter that much,” he told ITV.

Mousa Dembele says Tottenham can do better than the performance they produced against Arsenal in the North London derby.

Spurs went 1-0 up in that game before conceding an equaliser in the second-half.

“Sometimes we still need to find our way but there are games when we have played very well such as Sunderland away and at Arsenal, as well as a few games more but we can still do better than this,” said the Belgian.

Inter Milan are the latest side to be linked with a move for Spurs forward Roberto Soldado.

The Spaniard is being linked with a potential winter move away from White Hart Lane after struggling after his move from Valencia.

Sevilla are also thought to be interested, with a swap deal involving Carlos Bacca previously mentioned.
