Most famous England goal -
Last England goal -
My favourite Owen memory is the obvious one in the Argentina goal. Still remember going mad when it went in. Was never the same after the injury at Newcastle and trying to rush back for the 2006 WC.
That goal against Argentina,hat trick v Germany puting us one up v Brazil in WC'02.So many great memories.wonder how many he would have got if injury free? 65-70?Thanks for the memories.Also i remember my bro in law telling me about this kid who scored straight from the kick off?! don'tknow if anyone can put this up?
A great striker for England! He'll be remembered for sure.
Just such a pity his career fizzled out the way it did.
Like Barry, that Argentina goal was my highlight for him.
He was just such a natural goalscorer and how often do even those small natural goalscorers find the leap to score headed goals. Certainly scored his fair share. Actually searched it up as we speak and 11% of his goals in the Prem were headed goals. Decent proportion that.
A little something -
I actually attended Owens England debut vs Chile at Wembley. Hoddle fielded a real botched team that day and we went down 2-0 .
I was at what i think was his professional debut at Selhurst Park against Wimbledon when he came on as a sub and scored.
Remember being so excited about his potential after that Argentina goal. Sure he relied on pace a lot, but still surprising how much his game fell away.
Arguably one of the few English attacking players to be at least as good or better at international than club level.
That Chile side wasn't bad though...
The hat trick against Germany in Munich.
Wonderful player when he had his pace.
Marcello Salas was playing. High rated player at the time.
Thanks for the memories.... One of my favourites of all time, and would've broken scoring record had not been plagued by injuries.
A minutes applause for Michael. So many terrific highlights and a terrific career for both club and country. An always a gentleman.
40 goals for England from 89 appearances-- a fine player for England [and Liverpool]. I though his move to Spain would lead to his adding another string to his bow other than pace and accuracy. A pity, he didn't.
