Peter Crouch just brought back the robot after scoring his 100th Premier League goal

Congratulations Peter Crouch, you've just earned yourself a place on a pretty exclusive list.

By opening the scoring for Stoke against Everton, Crouch has become the 26th player in Premier League history to score 100 goals in the competition.

Along with Wayne Rooney, Jermain Defoe and Sergio Agüero, he's one of just four current Premier League players on the list, and of course, there was only one way he was going to celebrate the landmark goal.

Yep, he cranked out the robot – the celebration he made famous way back in 2006 when playing for England. Can you believe it's been 11 years since that happened, by the way?

Crouch didn't just decide to pull out his old celebration on the spot, he said a couple of weeks ago that he was thinking about bringing it back when he reached his 100th goal.

"They are telling me that I have to do it and to be fair, the pressure is taking its toll - maybe it will come out, we will see," he told The Sentinel.

"People still talk about it now but at the time it was just a bit of fun, and all of a sudden 10 years on, people are still talking about it. I only actually ever did it twice for England and people seemed to enjoy it so I'm sure I'll dust it off at some stage.

"I think half of the reason people enjoyed it was because I wasn't that good at it," he added.

He's right, the fact that he's a lanky bastard does make it much better to be fair.
