Peter Crouch has expressed his disappointment at not being part of Roy Hodgson’s England squad for Euro 2012. It emerged from the Three Lions manager during the World Cup qualifiers last week that Crouch had rejected to chance to join up with the squad after a raft of attacking absentees as he still had not recovered from being left out of the summer showpiece in Poland and Ukraine.

However, according to the Daily Telegraph, Crouch says he never turned down the chance to be on the standby squad for the tournament.

I was disappointed to be left out of the squad for the Euros, but I didn’t have the opportunity to go,”Crouch said. “It wasn’t a case of me being a standby. He [Hodgson] wanted me to play in one of the friendlies before the tournament and then go home. I was bitterly disappointed, and I think understandably so. We had a conversation, but I think that should remain between me and the manager. I was disappointed not to be called up to the full squad though.

Crouch has a remarkable scoring record for England, with 22 goals coming from 42 appearances and enjoyed a highly productive 2011-12 season in the lead up to Euro 2012, hitting 14 goals in all competitions for club side Stoke. The 6 ft 7 in striker has begun this season in similar fashion and after scoring against Manchester City on Saturday, now has three goals in three matches.
