Andros Townsend: England winger earned his third cap against Chile

Townsend earned his third cap as a second-half substitute against the technically advanced South Americans.

And the 22-year-old is confident England will produce a better performance against Germany on Tuesday.

"The Chile game was a good test for us, and hopefully we can do better in the Germany game." Townsend said.

"The manager came in after the game and said to us: 'we did not get too carried away when we qualified for Brazil, so don't beat yourselves up tonight because there is another game again on Tuesday when we can put all the wrongs right against Germany'.

"Friendlies are about giving people the chance to show what they can do, and we did that with rotating the team, but unfortunately did not get the result we were looking for.

"Chile are a very technical side and with the way they kept the ball, for half an hour or so we could not get anywhere near them but if we are going to go to the World Cup and do well, we are going to have to learn to play against teams like Chile.

"We have played a lot of European sides and to test ourselves against a South American side who do play a different style, we will take the positives out of it and move on to hopefully get a good result on Tuesday."

may well get slated by other United fans for this, but out of the three contenders, I'd far prefer Liverpool to win the title. Yes some elements of their fanbase can be a bit OTT, yes they're our biggest rivals and yes it will make our poor season feel even more like the end of an era (Fergie's gone, Liverpool are back on top). However I just have to applaud Brendan Rodgers and the way he's turned Liverpool around in just a couple of seasons. It...

ooray! We are all excited now, we beat a very mediocre team! With all due respect to WHU supporters, not winning that game shouldn't even be a consideration. This is the problem, there is no winning mentality at the Emirates - we're all congratulating ourselves beating a team that we have a winning record against.

s this meant to be an aspiration for United supporters? Moyes mediocrity strikes again. I see the Bayern boys don't want to sign for him, and his reputation amongst the senior European coaches make other key signings unlikely.
