Stoke City's Ryan Shawcross named in England side but team-mate Peter Crouch misses out
STOKE City captain Ryan Shawcross has been called up for England.
The defender was named in Roy Hodgson’s squad, ahead of World Cup Qualifying games against San Marino and Poland.
But despite the call up for Shawcross, his Stoke team-mate Peter Crouch was once again overlooked.
Crouch, who has scored five goals for the Potters already this season, was overlooked in favour of Tottenham Hotspur’s Jermain Defoe, Manchester United’s Wayne Rooney and Danny Welbeck and Andy Carroll, who is currently on loan from Liverpool to West Ham United.
