Peter Crouch, the former England striker, made his decision of retirement at the age of 38. The 6 feet 7 inch in height had made his debut in football with English league in 2000. He played for nine clubs, including Liverpool, Portsmouth, Tottenham, and Stoke. Recently he spent the second half of last season at Burnley. In May 2005, Crouch’s first England Cap came against Colombia, and he played 42 times for the Three Lions, scored 22 goals which was the best part of his career.

Crouch put a statement on his Twitter account, saying, “After a lot of deliberation this summer I have decided to retire from football. Our wonderful game has given me everything. I’m so thankful to everyone who helped me get there and to help me stay there for so long, If you told me at 17 I’d play in World Cups, get to a Champions League final, win the FA Cup and get 100 Premier League goals I would have avoided you at all costs. It’s been an absolute dream come true.”

He made 468 appearances for seven different clubs and scored 108 top-flight goals. He has a record of most headed goals, 51, in Premier League History. Crouch played in 2006 Football World Cup and scored his first competitive goal for England during a 2-0 group stage victory against Trinidad and Tobago.
