The English former professional soccer player is one of 33 players to have scored 100 or more Premier League goals.
Crouch has played for several top-level clubs like Hotspurs, Liverpool, Southampton, Aston Villa, and many more.
However, his significant club achievement came with ‘the Reds’ Liverpool, where he claimed FA Cup and FA Community Shield.
There he was UEFA Champions League runner-up (2006-07) along with the 2005 FIFA Club World Championship runner-up.
The English striker has been in the 2006 and 2010 world cup squads for England’s senior team. His first competitive world cup goal came in the 2006 World Cup against Trinidad and Tobago.
After taking retirement at the age of 38 in 2019, the former striker is working for BT Sport and Amazon Prime.
