Video: Stoke Striker Peter Crouch’s Insane Soccer Goal

As a hockey fan I know a beautiful goal when I see one and let me tell you, English soccer player Peter Crouch may have scored the best goal I have ever seen.

The 31-year-old took one touch to volley the ball up before striking it passed Manchester City’s goalie Joe Hart from way outside the goal box. It was an amazing effort and a goal that Crouch himself called his “best one” ever.

Unfortunately the game went back to be soccer after the goal and the ended in a 1-1 draw. If soccer players could somehow manage to do that about five or six times a game there is no doubt in my mind that soccer’s popularity would skyrocket in the United States.
