Stoke boss Pulis says Crouch deserves England chance
Crouch has been outstanding for the Potters this season.
"I tried to bite my tongue on whether he should go or not," Pulis told The Sentinel, "because you don't always want your club manager saying it when it's better coming from the outside.
"But now it is coming from the outside and there isn't much point me not saying what I have always felt.
"It's not my decision, but I would take him because of his experience, because of his pedigree and because he offers you something very different to other players."
