Peter Crouch had an incredible career in the Premier League, playing for seven different teams in the illustrious competition.
The target man started off in the Spurs academy system, before representing Aston Villa, Southampton, Liverpool, Portsmouth, Stoke City, and Burnley in the Premier League.
Of course, Crouch also made a return to Spurs in 2009 when he signed from Portsmouth, playing three seasons in the Lilywhite colours before transferring to Stoke.
During that time, the striker played in 93 games for Tottenham, scoring 24 goals. Throughout his entire career, Crouch played 735 matches and scored 205 goals, as well as another 22 in 42 for England (Wikipedia).
Despite this, Crouch has now revealed that a Tottenham strike is his joint-favourite goal ever, up there with a goal against Uruguay for England and his hat-trick goal against Arsenal for Liverpool in 2007.
The former Spurs man claimed that his header away to Manchester City that secured Champions League football for the first time in the Lilywhites’ history had to be up there for the pure adrenaline rush.
He said (Daily Mail): ‘It’s hard to pick one, so I will select three and in no particular order.
‘The first would be the goal that completed my hat-trick for Liverpool against Arsenal in March 2007; the technique, the move that led to it and putting it away in front of The Kop was special.
‘For emotion and an adrenaline rush, scoring against Manchester City to put Tottenham into the Champions League was incredible. If I think about it now, I can still see the away end going mental.
‘Last but not least, I’ll pick my first goal for England, at Anfield, against Uruguay in March 2006.’
