Stoke City forward impressed with Robbie Keane's international record.
Former England international Peter Crouch took to his new Twitter page to hail a former teammate who is still rattling in the goals for his country.
Robbie Keane featured against Germany last night for the Republic of Ireland, and ahead of the game his astounding strike rate struck Crouch.
65 international goals for Robbie keane that's unreal!— Peter Crouch (@petercrouch) October 14, 2014
The pair were former teammates at Tottenham Hotspur, part of a four-pronged strike force also including Jermain Defoe and Dimitar Berbatov.
Crouch, 33, has 22 goals for England but has not featured for his country for four years.
Keane was outdone against Germany by teammate John O'Shea, who netted on his 100th game for Ireland.
