Peter Crouch Forgetting His Champions League Goal Record On Live TV Is Hilarious

Peter Crouch is widely loved for his ability to laugh at himself - and he showed that off to full effect with a hilarious blunder on live TV.

After Phil Foden became just the fifth English player to score in both legs of a Champions League quarter-final tie, BT Sport host Jake Humphries quizzed his panel - including Crouch - on the other four.

Fellow pundits Joleon Lescott and Owen Hargreaves fired in their guesses and it was revealed that Wayne Rooney, Frank Lampard and Raheem Sterling were correct answers. Humphries paused on the final answer - waiting for the man himself to own up.

But a clueless-looking Crouch wasn't being modest. He genuinely didn't know that he was the other player. Classic.

"Was it?" asked a stumped Peter when the answer was revealed, before himself and the whole panel burst into fits of laughter.

"I was a good player, you know!" he added, before Humphries explained: "I was giving that the long delay, because he obviously knows it's him...".

Afraid not, Jake. The 40-year-old ex-England striker clearly doesn't spend a lot of time analysing his own records or he'd have known that back in the 2006/07 season - when Liverpool got to the Champions League final - Crouch scored in both quarter-final legs during a 4-0 aggregate triumph over PSV Eindhoven.

The 20-year-old Foden's two goals in two games came against Borussia Dortmund and were crucial in sealing a 4-2 aggregate win for Manchester City.

That sets up a mouth-watering tie against Paris Saint-Germain, while Real Madrid take on Chelsea in the other semi-final.

It also meant Foden wrote his name alongside Rooney, Lampard, Sterling and Crouch as an English player to have done the business in quarter-final first and second legs.

And, apparently, nobody was more surprised than Crouch to learn that the five players shared membership of an elite club.

Never change, Crouchinho.
