9780340937136: Walking Tall: My Story

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.

Book Description Hodder Stoughton General Division, United Kingdom, 2008. Paperback. Book Condition: New. 196 x 128 mm. Language: English . Brand New Book. He is 6ft 7in tall but Peter Crouch s height is not the only thing that makes the Liverpool and England striker different: he has a football story like no other player in the modern game. Crouch has risen from humble beginnings at non-league Dulwich Hamlet on loan to be an England striker and the first to score ten international goals in a calendar year. His career has not been the smooth journey from teen prodigy to Premiership star enjoyed by so many of his England team-mates. Booed by England fans in October 2005, Crouch had the same supporters on their feet with a hat-trick for his country eight months later. WALKING TALL is about a footballer who has always found himself under intense scrutiny - for the way he looks as much as his ability on the pitch. Crouch s story is also about his constant battle to win over the doubters. He talks about the managers who have backed him - as well as those who have written him off - and relives the pain of rejection at Aston Villa, contrasted with the elation of his GBP7 million transfer to Liverpool just one year later in the summer of 2005. Crouch was a key figure in England s 2006 World Cup campaign and in WALKING TALL he talks about his famous robot dance as well as the goals and the disappointments of that summer in Germany. For Crouch, the journey continues under Rafael Benitez at Anfield and with Fabio Capello s England team. Funny, honest and open, WALKING TALL is the story of an unlikely hero.
