Tottenham striker Crouch still big fan of Ronaldo

Tottenham striker Peter Crouch admits he grew up idolising Ronaldo.

England face Brazil on Saturday in Qatar and Crouch confesses he still follows Ronaldo's career at Corinthians now.

"Ronaldo was a great hero of mine. He still is," said the Tottenham striker. "I used to love watching him.

"Even as a professional, I admit there is something special about playing for Brazil.

"We all grew up watching the great Brazil teams and all those great flair players. It is a great fixture. They are a fantastic team, full of world-class players."
