Peter Crouch produces hilarious fail on Soccer AM

Published Add your comment

Peter Crouch has provided football fans with some spectacular and hilarious moments over the course of his career.

In the summer of 2006, during a 3-1 win over Hungary for England, the lanky striker celebrated his goal by doing the robot and performed the very same following a brace against Jamaica four days later.

He became a cult hero during his three-year spell at Liverpool, scoring a number of overhead kicks and memorably claiming a hat-trick against Arsenal.

And in 2012, against Manchester City, Crouch scored arguably the best goal of his career by lashing an incredible volley past Joe Hart having teed himself up from 25 yards.

Recent times have seen the 35-year-old settle for a place on the bench for current employers Stoke City, but on Soccer AM this morning, he delivered a timely reminder of what makes him such a loveable character.

While participating in the show's 'Headers and Volleys' game, Crouch was set the ball by Tubes and attempted to volley the ball past the goalkeeper.

But what happened next was a moment of hilarity, as the striker slipped and stumbled backwards before collapsing in a heap on the floor (see below).

Credit where credit is due, Crouch refused to let his embarrassing gaff get the better of him and swiftly got back to his feet to try again.

However, his second and third attempts were equally as poor, both soaring over the bar.
