Would have Michael Owen made it to the world cup

Unlucky Owen again hit with injury will not play again this season after pulling his hamstring in the 2-1 Carling Cup final win over Aston Villa.

Owen who scored United’s equaliser at Wembley, pulled up while chasing a pass in the first half last weekend. The injury all but ends Owen’s hopes of playing for England at the World Cup and some say he would have been picked.

“It is more serious than we thought. I think the heavy pitch at Wembley played some part, but it’s also bad luck,” said United manager Sir Alex Ferguson

Owen, who has scored  40 goals in 89 games for England, admitted  he was not expecting to be included in coach Fabio Capello’s 23-man World Cup squad for South Africa but we will never know now.

Dean Ashton says Michael Owen would have been in his World Cup squad had he not been ruled out through injury 

“I would have taken Michael Owen, but he’s obviously out now,” he said. “I’m sure he’s devastated because, without him saying it, he would’ve believed that if he could get playing again at Manchester United and scoring goals he would have a good chance of going.

“He’s proven at World Cups, he can score goals and that’s what you need at the highest level.”
