FORMER Saint Peter Crouch has revealed the "embarrassing" moment Theo Walcott and Nathan Dyer burst onto the scene.

The two youngsters were invited to train with the first team by Harry Redknapp.

However, Crouch admitted that ex-boss Redknapp was "fuming" with the duo.

"It was embarrassing – they were megging them, outpacing them and whipping balls in. 

"It was attack vs defence but they were constantly scoring goals, and Harry was fuming."

Walcott made his Saints debut in October 2005 and then signed joined Arsenal in January 2006 for a £12million fee.
