GIF It: Peter Crouch’s incredible volleyed goal over and over again (Stoke City 1-1 Manchester City)

Posted by - March 26, 2012 - GIF It, Manchester City, Stoke City

Peter Crouch proved that Stoke’s route one football can be sexy with this wonderstrike against Manchester City at the weekend.

The ball didn’t touch the ground from the moment is left goalkeeper Asmir Begovic’s boot until it bounced around behind the goalline.

Fantastic skills from Crouch, who struggled along a tightrope between humility and pride by admitting that it was the best goal he’s ever scored but made sure everyone knew it wasn’t a fluke by alluding to working on his volleying in training.

He said: “”I think it was probably my best one. When the ball dropped, I tried to pop it up and try a volley technique. I do it a lot and practice it, though they don’t always fly in like that!”

     Love it.
    For some reason it takes the shine off it a little bit knowing that it didnt touch the ground from the goalie. I dont know why.
    But good on Stoke and Crouchy.
