Injured Crouch pulls out of England Euro 2012 qualifiers

Peter Crouch will miss the Euro 2012 qualifiers against Bulgaria and Switzerland due to a back injury, reports the Daily Mail. The Tottenham striker was always going to be a major doubt once club boss Harry Redknapp revealed what he thought was a rib problem after Saturday's surprise home defeat to Wigan.

Coach Fabio Capello took the precaution of naming an additional striker in his 24-man squad, so when it was confirmed on Wednesday afternoon Crouch had returned to Spurs for treatment, there was no requirement for a replacement to be drafted in.
