R’S LOANEE Andros Townsend hailed a ‘job well done,’ as England Under-21’s continued their perfect preparation for this summer’s European Championships with a ninth successive win on Monday night.
The Spurs youngster played the full 90 minutes as Stuart Pearce’s men chalked up a 4-0 victory over nine-man Austria at the AMEX Stadium.
Speaking exclusively to www.qpr.co.uk, the 21 year-old attacker said: “It was a really good team performance, albeit made easier when they went down to nine men.
“I was pleased with how I did, but everyone deserves credit for the win.
“It was a case of job well done for us.”
Last night’s win followed hot-on-the-heels of a 3-0 win over Romania last Thursday – a fixture Townsend missed owing to a minor heel injury.
“It was just a precaution more than anything,” he said.
“It was frustrating though because these two matches were the last real chance to impress the management prior to the Euros.”
Indeed, the Euros in Israel in May are the next port of call for Pearce’s young lions and whilst Townsend is excited about the prospect of appearing in a major tournament this summer, he insists his entire focus over the coming months is on QPR.
He added: “If I’m honest I’m not even thinking ahead to the Euros this summer.
“My focus is on QPR and keeping this club in the Premier League.
“If I keep performing well for QPR then hopefully an England call-up this summer will come hand in hand, but my main focus in on the remaining eight games and winning matches for this club.”
