The 2.01m-tall frontman has not featured for the Three Lions since scoring the only goal in the friendly 2-1 loss against France in November 2010.
Crouch has been called up to the squad several times, but failed to make an appearance. He was not called up for the squad that travelled to Montenegro in the past week.
When asked whether his chances of making an appearance after England teammate Rooney was banned for his dismissal, Crouch was pessimistic.
He told BBC Radio Stoke: "I wouldn't say so, I don't carry much hope. I go into each game with Stoke to play as well as I can and if the England call comes, that would be fantastic."
The 30-year-old is baffled by the decision to leave him out, given his impressive international strike record of scoring 22 goals in 42 appearances for England.
Crouch continued: "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 [not to be selected in the England squad].
"I'll get on with playing for Stoke because I'm really enjoying it. If the call comes then great, but if not, I'm happy where I am."
