Former Tottenham forward Garth Crooks was the BBC's reporter from the England camp at Euro 2000.

And he will be part of the television team at the 2002 World Cup in Japan and Korea.

Born in Stoke-on-Trent, he began his playing career at the age of 19 with Stoke City, moving to Tottenham four years later to form a formidable strikeforce with Steve Archibald.

Crooks scored more than 200 league goals and won the FA Cup with Spurs in 1981 and 1982, and the Uefa Cup in 1984.

The following season he joined Manchester United on loan, and then had spells at West Bromwich Albion and Charlton Athletic, before hanging up his boots in 1990.

Having made television appearances while still a player, the switch to presenting was a natural one and Crooks was a match analyst for the BBC during the 1982 and 1990 World Cups.
