Peter Crouch Forgot That He Scored In the Champions League, And It Was Hilarious

Peter Crouch had an impressive career at the very highest level, after featuring for the likes of Tottenham Hotspur and Liverpool and scoring more than 100 Premier League goals.

He won the FA Cup and Community Shield during his time with the Reds, and scored 22 goals in 42 caps for England, appearing at two World Cups for the Three Lions.

Amidst all of those achievements, you could be forgiven for forgetting a few of your accomplishments, and Crouch did just that on his appearance as a TV pundit in BT Sport's Champions League coverage last season.

Crouch and fellow pundits Owen Hargreaves and Joleon Lescott were put on the spot after Manchester City secured their place in the semi-finals after a 4-2 aggregate win over Borussia Dortmund in the last eight.

Phil Foden scored in that second leg tie in Germany, which prompted a brain teaser from presenter Jake Humphrey.

He asked: "Right: quiz time. Phil Foden is the fifth English player to score in both legs of a Champions League quarter-final. Can anyone name any of the other four?"

Humphrey revealed that Wayne Rooney, Frank Lampard and Raheem Sterling were the other three Englishmen on the scoresheet, before staring directly at Crouch and saying: "one more."


The 41-year-old still didn't guess himself, before Humphrey revealed that the answer was "Peter Crouch."

Crouch's response was hilarious, and he added: "Was it?"

"Oh, I was a good player, you know!"

The games in question were against PSV Eindhoven in Liverpool's run to the 2007 Champions League Final.

Crouch scored the third and final goal in a 3-0 first leg win at the Philips Stadion, before he found the net again in a 1-0 second-leg victory at Anfield.

The Reds would be denied a sixth European Cup though, as he came off the bench in a 2-1 defeat to AC Milan in the final.
