"I would have taken Darren - he'll get you a goal," Crosby told the Evening Chronicle.
"In tournament football you need someone to score goals regularly if you want to be successful and go far. England haven't done that so far, they've scored two in three games.
"Look at the respective goal records. Emile doesn't score enough but Darren's record, for being in a team outside the top four, is phenomenal. It speaks for itself."
