Crouchy earns England recall

Crouchy earns England recall

Fresh from a number of fine performances for Pompey in recent weeks, which were capped fantastically with a stunning goal today Peter Crouch has earned an England recall - the first time he has been in the senior squad as a Pompey player I believe...

Regulars David James, Glen Johnson and Jermain Defoe have also been selected for the world cup qualifiers against Kazakhstan and Belarus.

Crouch - despite still receiving sum unfair criticism - deserves his recall and hopefully his pairing at club level could get a go at international level too? I wonder if people still think he is a waste of money...

England squad:
James (Portsmouth), Green (West Ham), Carson (West Brom)

Brown (Manchester United), Johnson (Portsmouth), Terry (Chelsea), Ferdinand (Manchester United), Lescott (Everton), Upson (West Ham), A Cole (Chelsea), Bridge (Chelsea)

Beckham (Los Angeles Galaxy), Walcott (Arsenal), Barry (Aston Villa), Jenas (Tottenham), Lampard (Chelsea), Gerrard (Liverpool), Downing (Middlesbrough), Wright-Phillips (Manchester City)

Heskey (Wigan), Crouch (Portsmouth), Rooney (Manchester United), Defoe (Portsmouth).

FOUR players in the squad and only Chelsea can match that. Shows how far we have come.

Well great news to end a great week. Now what odds on all 4 being on the pitch at the same time?

Well Matt - James is certain starter (as russianhammer says Green had a mare today but will get back on form soon) Johnson will play at home to Kaz because Fabio likes him when he wants to push forward and Brown will come back in Minsk. Up front Rooney is a certainty to start but with who? Maybe with JD and Crouch coming on as a late sub to make 4 Pompey players in the same England side..........dreams eh after Europe on Thursday.

I think that there is a chance that rooney WON'T start. Striking is about partnerships, and in that, it will come down to rooney and heskey or crouch and defoe. I reckon our two could get the "nod"

Jamo rolls it out to GJ who tears up the right flank, knocks it in to Crouchy who nods it down to JD - ONE-NIL! That's my version of England v Kazakhstan. Don't worry, I'm going to bed in a minute, it's been a long day.

Think he deserves it on recent performances. Who would bet against him and Defoe bagging a couple if they start??

Great news and well deserved.We have a top quality patnership upfront which is really starting to blossom. It was only ruined by MOTD comment last night. Grrrr Alan Hansen.

Worthy of a new deal?

So, Danny Rose, as we know, isn't going to play again this season. As things stand this would mean he'll not pull on a Pompey shirt again as his contract expires in the summer.
