Peter Crouch will be immortalized in Guinness World Records 2018 for scoring the most headed goals of the Premier League era. The Stoke City striker moved past Alan Shearer’s tally of 46 in May 2015, and has since added a further four goals to set a record that is unlikely to be broken any time soon.
Crouch’s 51 headers came at six clubs over a 15-year period, during which he also scored 22 England goals in 42 caps – only the third striker after Jimmy Greaves and Gary Lineker to finish his England career with a ratio better than one goal every two games. “It feels good! To hold any record, certainly in the Premier League, is great. I’m very proud of it,” Crouch told Guinness World Records.
