Crouch targets England recall

Published Add your comment

Peter Crouch is hoping Fabio Capello's resignation will open the door for him to return to the England squad.

The Stoke striker's last game for the national team came in a friendly defeat by France in November 2010, with Crouch then finding himself out of favour. But Capello's decision to resign could be good news for Crouch, especially if Harry Redknapp, the 31-year-old's manager at Portsmouth and Tottenham and favourite for the job, does succeed the Italian.

"I've not been in the last few squads," Crouch said. "Whoever takes over hopefully will start picking me again but it's only what you do for your club that warrants getting in the England set-up again so I've got to play well for Stoke, score goals and hopefully that will come."
