Townsend praised for efforts at Spurs

In a recent press conference, Spurs' head coach Andre Villas-Boas was very complimentary about some of the fringe members of the squad and Andros Townsend was one of those singled out for a mention.

Townsend had just appeared as a second half substitute for Tottenham against Aston Villa and was shortly to score his third goal for the club away to Carlisle in the Capital One Cup.

Last night's game had every chance of becoming an annual banana skin but in the end, a young Spurs outfit were pretty impressive as they brushed aside Carlisle by three goals to nil.

After a Jan Vertonghen header edged the first period, superb efforts by Andros Townsend and Gylfi Sigurdsson sealed the win while a clean sheet at the back would have also pleased the Spurs coaching staff.

It's Carlisle next for Spurs in the Capital One Cup and the league one side seem confident that they can cause an upset. Perhaps their manager Greg Abbott had in mind that AVB may send a fringe squad to this fixture but he feels that his lowly team can give us a scare at the very least.

"I've said it before, a full Brunton Park cheering on their team makes it a test for any team and we certainly don't want to just turn up and give it to them," Abbott said.

Their Words "Abby Wambach is tougher than anyone in the MLS — she runs around like a cross between Troy Polamalu and Clint Eastwood circa 1973. Totally fearless.

When it comes to knock out games, the U.S. women's national team certainly like late game heroics. In the 2011 Women's World Cup it was Abby Wambach in the 122nd minute against Brazil and yesterday it was Alex Morgan and the 123rd minute against cross-border rivals Canada. Morgan's goal propelled the USWNT to a 4-3 win and secured a berth in the Olympics goal medal match.

A series of defensive blunders put the Lady Nats on the back foot before goals from Abby Wambach, Alex Morgan (2), and Carli Lloyd eased the jitters.
