Low heralds 'dynamic' Townsend

Germany coach Joachim Low has praised the 'quick and dynamic' Andros Townsend ahead of their clash with England.

Low used the word 'dynamic' again to describe England's style as the spotlight comes on Roy Hodgson once again for his tactics.

But the German is an admirer of 'fantastic coach' Hodgson and believes England play in a counter-attacking style that suits the players at his disposal.

"England have been and always will be one of the big footballing nations, if you ask me," said Low.

"Looking in from the outside, (Steven) Gerrard, (Frank) Lampard and (Wayne) Rooney are players of elite calibre with a wealth of experience behind them.

"Andros Townsend is very quick and dynamic, and they have impressive wide players.

"So England have nothing to fear in that department.

"England may be tactically different from Italy, but they are still playing with tremendous force, they have great tackling power and a very dynamic approach to the game.

"And they have individual players who with a solo effort can decide a game if need be.

"If you look at (Wayne) Rooney dropping deep, (Theo) Walcott and (Daniel) Sturridge, they are very good on the counter-attack.

"So yes it would suit England to play on the counter-attack, why not?"
