On 24 March 2012, Stoke City earned a 1-1 draw against Manchester City at the Britannia Stadium thanks to a spectacular 25-yard volley from Peter Crouch.

With the anniversary of that goal having just passed, the former striker has been speaking to BBC Radio Stoke's Rob Adcock about whether that is the best finish he's ever created.

"There are other goals that I think about as well, but that's certainly right up there. I think it's the best goal I've scored in the Premier League, 100%.

"I got a scissor kick in the Champions League against Galatasaray which I love. There was one I scored for Tottenham in the Champions League, World Cup goals, like there's certain goals, but as a technical goal, it's probably my best.

"It comes up every now and then. Every month, there's always someone that puts it out there and I look at it on social media.

"When you look at the whole stadium's reaction, the manager's reaction, the bench's reaction, my reaction, it's one of those moments where I'm so glad that it happened because it made so many people so happy."
