'If It's Football, It's Vital'

Owen - Good News

Michael Owen says he is confident he will be fully match fit for the World Cup in Germany this summer after been given the 'all clear' from a scan on his foot on Sunday morning. He seemed to hobble off the pitch at St Andrews on Saturday, but the scan revealed there is no damage.

Owen: 'The World Cup is six weeks away so I have no doubts I will be fit. We keep ourselves fit, even when we are injured, and in terms of fitness and everything else I have plenty of time to sharpen myself up.

'I would be disappointed to take six weeks to sharpen up - it should be more like six days.

'It has been a long four and a half months so far since I last played so I was very keen to get back into the thick of the action. I have trained for quite a while now and it is nice to have been out with the players on the pitch training all week.'

Why not? If they aren't fit, then throw the youngsters in. Who knows how they'll perform. defoe, bent, lennon. Chuck em in and give them their head. Nothing to lose.

I think Owen is going to be a flop at the World Cup. Even if he's fit, he won't be anywhere near match sharp.

Lets not be too confident eh pity. Or shall i presume that you are not english. Good news on Owen i say. World class finisher. Form is temporary but class is permanent.
