Forward craves European football

Stoke forward Peter Crouch admits that he misses the atmosphere of Champions League football as he prepares to head to White Hart Lane.

The 31-year-old has featured in Europe's elite competition for a number of sides, firstly with Liverpool before being given the opportunity with Spurs as well as a run in the Europa League with the Potters.

But the tall forward has revealed that the excitement of the big European stage is something he craves.

He returns to face his former club today with fond memories of grabbing a late winner against AC Milan at the San Siro, but he will not let memories get in the way of his task.

"The atmosphere at the Britannia when we play any of the big teams certainly rivals any of those games in Europe," he said.

"But playing in the Champions League is the pinnacle. Playing in places like the San Siro and Bernabeu takes a lot of living up to."
