Peter Crouch claims he has done everything he possibly could to be a part of England’s World Cup squad.
He said: “The 30 has to be cut down and everyone is looking over their shoulder.
“I think all the training sessions are competitive when we come away with England but maybe a little bit more so at present. It has been very sharp.
“Everyone is fighting for their place and we are all trying to impress the manager in the training sessions and the games before the World Cup against Mexico and Japan.
“I would prefer all five strikers to go then I would be definitely be going.”
Crouch added: “Do I expect to go to South Africa? I can’t say that. But I’ve been pleased with the season at Spurs, felt I’ve done well personally.
“Being part of a successful team helps to catch the eye of people – and hopefully the manager’s eye.
“The last England game was also great for me in scoring a couple of goals.
“I feel I’ve done everything I can, I’m full of confidence and, as long as I continue to do well and work hard this week, hopefully I’ll have a good chance of making the squad.”
