The 31-year-old has not played for England since scoring against France in November 2010 after falling out of favour with former manager Fabio Capello.
Crouch told BBC Sport: "I knew right from the start when I signed for Stoke that, if I was playing well and scoring goals, I would have a chance of being involved in the England set-up.
"There is huge competition in the summer. I have been fortunate enough to play in two World Cups and 42 times for my country.
"I know if I am working hard and playing well I will get a chance and hopefully I will grab it with both hands."
