Stoke Coty striker Peter Crouch is excited about his potential partnership with Michael Owen.

Crouch refuses to rule out a sensational England reunion if Three Lions legend Owen returns to his best at the Britannia.

The pair scored 16 goals in 16 games in tandem for England and Crouch told The Sun: "If Michael stays fit he will score.

"If he's playing regularly for Stoke and scoring in the Premier League, I don't see why he can't force his way into the England set-up.

"Stoke's profile is about to be raised just by the fact Michael is here and the gaffer has made a lot of shrewd summer signings.

"The future looks bright and, if we're scoring regularly in the Premier League for a successful team, why shouldn't we be considered again?"
