Stoke boss Tony Pulis felt match-winner Peter Crouch was "unplayable" at times during Saturday afternoon's 2-0 Barclays Premier League victory over Swansea - but is not about to demand the striker is given an England recall.

Crouch - who last played for his country in 2010 - scored both the Potters' goals in the clash at the Britannia Stadium to take his tally for the season to five in all competitions and earn the Staffordshire outfit their first win of the campaign.

Pulis said: "I'm not reluctant (to talk about Crouch and England), but Roy has a lot of experience and the last thing I want to do is tell him what team to pick. It has to be up to him. I don't think Peter can do any more than score goals and play well, and you have seen him today - in the first half he was unplayable."
