The winger netted a slightly fortuitous effort – his first for the Lilywhites – to help Spurs secure all three points at Villa Park and move up to fifth in the Premier League.
Townsend was also on target for his country during his debut against Montenegro before helping the Three Lions confirm their place at next summer’s World Cup with a victory over Poland.
Alongside this, the 22-year-old also penned a new contract at White Hart Lane which will keep him at the club for another four years.
Townsend says that he is thrilled with his recent achievements, but that he is trying to remain level-headed to help Tottenham progress.
“It’s been one of the best few weeks of my life,” Townsend told Sky Sports.
“But the main thing today was getting back to winning ways after the result against West Ham.
“Obviously, scoring for my country on my debut was one of the highlights of my career, but getting my first goal for my hometown club in the Premier League is up there.
“The main thing for me now is to not get carried away, to keep my feet on the ground and keep putting in the performances when I get the chance for Spurs.”
Despite Andre Villas-Boas having spent big to lure Erik Lamela, Christian Eriksen and Nacer Chadli to the club, Townsend has established himself as one of Spurs’ key men with some excellent displays.
