Striker gives FATV his thoughts on South African instrument of choice.
One of the major talking points from the World Cup so far has been the constant use of the South African trumpet instrument, the vuvuzela.
With numerous players and coaches from various countries having already spoken out against its use, England’s Peter Crouch has admitted he’s something of a fan.
Speaking to FATV’s Tim Lovejoy in an exclusive interview for TheFA.com, Crouch feels it’s part of the African festival atmosphere found at the games and is keen to hear more.
"I think it's brilliant,” he said. “My dad's got even one, he was up until one in the morning the other night with it after the game!
"It creates a good atmosphere though. It's different and it's not something we're used to having in England but it's popular out here.”
Crouch also believes England and Manager Fabio Capello can take plenty of positives out of their opening draw with USA ahead of Friday’s trip to Cape Town to face Algeria.
"I think he knows we can do better,” he added.
"He certainly saw things in the game that were encouraging and he's taken them and told us we can still believe and take those positives into the next match.
"Obviously we can still improve, but there were some encouraging signs as well.
"We had chances to go on and win the game comfortably, so it's not all doom and gloom. We've got two more games to go and get it right.”You can hear a whole lot more from Crouch in our two-part interview with him, where he also discusses the World Cup ball and who’s dominating the darts, golf and snooker in the squad.
