Book Description

15 Mar 2007
A true jewel in England's crown, Newcastle United striker Michael Owen has played a major part in England's fortunes since making his debut at 18 versus Chile in 1998. A world-class striker with just under a goal every two games in international football, Michael's combination of skill, pace and ability to read the game make him a unique talent. He scored a wonderful goal against Argentina in the 1998 World Cup Finals in France and shocked the Germans with a sensational hat-trick in Munich in 2001. Michael joined Real Madrid from his boyhood club Liverpool in August 2004, but was back in the Premiership a year later, signing for Newcastle United in a club record GBP 17 million transfer. With time on his side, the all-time England goal record is certainly within his grasp. In this revealing biography, Ollie Derbyshire speaks to Owen's family, friends and teammates and reveals the full story of a footballer destined to be ranked alongside the World's greatest.

Product Description


"Michael Owen "In my mind, down at the local park when I was a kid, I think I have won the World Cup about two million times and the FA Cup a million times. I'd be running round putting on my commentator's voice: "Gary Lineker running through at Wembley... goal!" In real life of course, I have only won the FA Cup once but that's got to be the best day of my football life. To score the winning goal, very late, against Arsenal in the final was just amazing..."
