Peter Crouch insists he is not about to immediately retire from international football in the wake of his latest England snub, although he will consider his future over the summer.
The Tottenham striker was not even named as one of Fabio Capello's substitutes in Saturday's 2-2 draw with Switzerland in Euro 2012 qualifying.
And reports consequently emerged that Crouch, who has not played for England for several months, was prepared to quit.
Having already scored an impressive 22 goals in 42 internationals, the 30-year-old is not about to make any rash decision, but will give thought to his career for his country.
Crouch told Sky Sports News about being overlooked against Switzerland: "I was disappointed, of course.
"I will have to think about things over the summer. I don't want to make any stupid decisions.
"It is still fresh in my mind. I don't want to rush into anything silly.
"I have got the summer now, I can take a break, get away from football for a bit and see how I feel in pre-season."
