While the 30-year-old is a potential candidate to replace the Manchester United star, Crouch isn't confident he will be picked.
"I wouldn't say Wayne's absence means I'll get back in," the Daily Star quotes Crouch as saying. "I don't carry much hope.
"I've felt like I've always done well for England and I feel like I've been doing well for Stoke, so of course it's disappointing when I'm not selected.
"I'll get on with playing for Stoke. If the call comes then great, but if not, I'm happy where I am."
Rooney is expected to learn the length of his match ban today.
