Crouch at the double in England win

Published Add your comment

Peter Crouch stepped up his claims for a World Cup starting spot with two goals as England came from behind to defeat Egypt 3-1 at Wembley.

The Tottenham striker took his goal tally for his country to 20 in 37 games after replacing club-mate Jermaine Defoe at half-time when England trailed to Mohamed Zidan's opener.

Shaun Wright-Phillips also hit the target as England recovered from a poor first-half performance to run out comfortable winners.
