“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.”
Peter Crouch announced his retirement on Friday and we miss him already.

But he was a much more dangerous striker than that. As his finest moments prove.
