Peter Crouch

The 6ft 7in Crouch was always going to be in a list of target men.

Despite maybe not commanding the same sort of plaudits he once did, Crouch's size makes him a very usable asset for any team he plays for, and a very uncomfortable detail for defenders he comes up against.

Having played at the very highest level, and been used to extremely good effect for England - he's scored 22 goals in 42 caps - Crouch is also known for having exceptionally good feet for a big man.

As far as target men go, Crouch - get ready for the pun - is up there with the best of them.
