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.
