Battle of the backheels: Peter Crouch (Preston-Spurs) v Gabby Agbonlahor (Aston Villa-Cardiff)

Battle of the backheels: Peter Crouch (Preston Spurs) v Gabby Agbonlahor (Aston Villa Cardiff)Two strikers vying for a place in Fabio Capello’s England squad for the World Cup in South Africa are in fine fettle at the moment. Peter Crouch’s return to Spurs has gone swimmingly whilst Gabriel Agbonlahor has scored four in four.

Last night both notched goals with backheels, a rare feat at the best of times. However, both added a little twist. Crouch completed his hat-trick at Deepdale with a vollyed back heel whilst Agbonlahor’s winner was a nutmeg through the legs of a Cardiff defender.

You’ve probably guessed what is coming next… Which backheel was better:

Peter Crouch’s backheel volley or Gabriel Agbonlahor’s backheel nutmeg?
