Peter Crouch is an English professional footballer who currently plays for the Premier League club Stoke City after moving from Tottenham Hotspur. Having represented England’s national team at under 21 level, he was called for the first time to the senior side in 2005 and played four matches at the 2006 FIFA World Cup in Germany. At 6 ft 7 in (2.01 m), he is the tallest man ever to play for the England national team.
World Cup Exploitable
On June 15, 2006, Peter Crouch stepped on the field as one of the strikers for England against Trinidad and Tobago. Although Crouch managed to save his face by scoring the tiebreaker near the end (83"), he apparently missed quite a few chances throughout the game. One of the photos shot during the match showed Crouch landing awkwardly after an unsuccessful attempt at volleying David Beckham’s right wing cross, which quickly became fodder for Internet exploitables as well as media buzztalk. It is also known as “Peter Crouch Can Do Anything”
Peter Crouch is also well known by English football fans for his robotic dancing goal celebration--otherwise known as the Robocrouch. He first performed it after scoring a goal for England against Hungary in May 2006.
While Peter Crouch still continues to play in England’s Premier Lague, his fifteen minute of fame peaked during the World Cup 2006 in Germany. Being the most widely-viewed sporting event in the world, World Cup matches tend to spawn lots of sideline gossips and lulz.
