Player profile

Crouch ended his first season back at the club where he began his career by scoring the goal that defeated Manchester City and clinched Champions League qualification. He then had to apologise to his mother, who is a staunch City fan.

At 6ft 7ins, Crouch is the tallest player ever to represent England and his scoring record for his country is excellent, although critics point out that he has yet to do so against the strongest opposition.

Crouch has commanded nearly £35m in transfer fees during a career which began uncertainly when he left Spurs without making a first-team appearance after loan spells at non-league Dulwich Hamlet and Swedish side IFK Hassleholm.

He then played for QPR, Portsmouth, Aston Villa and Norwich (on loan), and Southampton before a £7m switch to Liverpool in 2005 and won the FA Cup in his first season at Anfield.

Has experience of the big occasion, but was on the losing side in the 207 Champions League final when Liverpool were beaten 2-1 by AC Milan.
