Crouch on target but faces suspension

Reds striker Peter Crouch was on target for England tonight as Steve McLaren’s side won 3-0 away in Estonia, but picked up a yellow card which will see him banned for England’s next game.

After Joe Cole gave England a first half lead in the Euro 2008 qualifier in Tallinn, Crouch headed home a David Beckham cross before former Liverpool striker Michael Owen added a third shortly after the hour mark.

However Crouch later picked up a needless yellow card, his second of the qualifying campaign, which will see him miss England’s first competitive game at the new Wembley Stadium ‘“ against Israel on September 8th.

Steven Gerrard also played the full 90 minutes, but Jamie Carragher was relegated to the bench in favour of Manchester Utd’s Wes Brown.

England stay fourth in Group E of the Euro 2008 qualifiers, three points off group leaders Croatia and Israel.

The game is the final game of the 2006/07 season, so here’s to wishing our players an enjoyable summer break.
