So, England drew 1-1 with Italy last night and it was a bit of a snorefest until Andros Townsend popped up to with an excellent finish to light up the occasion. And grab England a point.
Obviously he didn't grab England a point, sure it was a friendly. You try tell Roy Hodgson that.
As tends to happen, the retribution for the forgivable slip-up was swift.
Hodgson "Fair play to Townsend, he got us the point"
Er...yes....a point Roy, of course.....

Roy Hodgson just said about Andros Townsend "it was his goal that got us the point".
I had to rewind just to check.
The bloke is mental.

Never knew you get a point in a friendly. Hodgson has no clue
