At six feet, seven inches tall, Peter Crouch stands out in a crowd. But England's hugely popular striker is famous for more than just being the national squad's tallest player in history. He scored 17 goals in 2004-2005, and in 2006 became the first player on the national squad to score 10 goals in a calendar year. Crouch has suffered intense media scrutiny throughout his career, particularly during his first months at Liverpool. Not one to buckle under pressure, he demonstrated great tenacity by making himself a crucial member of the Reds and the England squad. An incredible scoring record and all-around ability—along with his now legendary robot dance celebration—have made Crouch a hero to England fans. This is the story of his rise to the pinnacle of soccer fame.
