Walcott and Crouch support winter break
8th June 2011 - Berko Tau
England internationals Theo Walcott and Peter Crouch have urged for a winter break to be incorporated into the Premier League season of football games.
Speaking to BBC sport, Walcott said: "We love playing football but it is a long season. Not just physically but mentally as well, it's nice to have a break.
"I know in Spain and Italy they have a break ... when it comes to the tournaments, we do seem to look a little bit tired."
Tottenham's Peter Crouch also supported the concept of a winter break and said that both players and coaches would approve the idea.
The argument for a winter break has re-entered the public conscience after England's Euro 2012 qualifier with Switzerland on Saturday (June 4th), which culminated in a 2-2 draw.
After the result, England coach Fabio Capello claimed that his team's players were "without energy" in the game, though other results meant that England are top of their qualification group.
