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. Further, he was also selected in the 2010 World Cup held in South Africa. Extratips.com covers all football league tournaments including the world cup events to provide latest football betting tips.

Lamar Jackson has proved once again that it is not going to matter who the opponent is. He competes against whatever has been put in front of him. On Sunday game against Arizona Cardinals, Baltimore Ravens’s Lamar Jackson has shown his mettle when he contributed in Baltimore’s 23-17 win. He passed for 272 yards and two touchdowns. He carried the ball 16 times for 120 yards. After beating the Miami Dolphins by 59-10 opening win, he threw five touchdown passes and posted a perfect quarterback rating of 158.3 in that contest. Lamar is showing the world that he can do a lot of damage with his legs as well.

The past record of Arizona is the worst in the league’s last seasons and Miami is looking forward for next year’s draft. These facts are driving the truth behind Jackson’s growth in the second season. It is true that Ravens are enjoying Jackson’s fast start in the season. Jackson told the reporters that his numbers against the Dolphins were not bad and these numbers are a reference to all the critics who called him a limited passer in the last season. After this big win, Ravens’ head coach John Harbaugh cheerfully said that it is now running a real conundrum for opposing defenses and trying to contain Jackson in the coming weeks. The next game of Ravens is with Kanas City Chiefs on Sunday and the game coverage will be available on alternative Reddit NFL Streams.

The Ravens have appointed a perfect coach for Jackson. The coach Harbaugh is comfortably reconfiguring his offense to fit his quarterback’s skill set. Baltimore also has a creative offensive coordinator in Greg Roman, the same person who turned Colin Kaepernick into a multidimensional star in San Francisco. On Sunday, Jackson became the first player in the league history who threw for at least 270 yards and ran for 100 yards in each game.
