Who Laughed At Owen Snub?

Who Laughed At Owen Snub?

Michael Owen insists he will be ready for the World Cup this summer despite breaking a bone in his right foot during Newcastle's defeat at Tottenham. So that's put us all in a great mood, hasn't it? We can rest at night knowing he will be in Grmany in the summer, if not on the field at St James' Park.

The 26-year-old England striker broke his fifth metatarsal and could be out for 'several months'.

Despite the setback, Owen remained confident the injury will not affect his preparations for Germany next summer when England face Trinidad and Tobago, Sweden and Paraguay in the group stages of football's biggest tournament.

Owen: 'It's disappointing but everyone gets their fair share, if there's any consolation I've got plenty of time before the World Cup. There's no quick ways, it's two-and-a-half months or three months, I don't know what it is but it's the same for everyone. Loads of people have had it done - (Wayne) Rooney, (David) Beckham, Gary Neville and Stevie Gerrard.'

If Owen was ruled out of any England games, it's ironic that Peter Crouch would be in contention to replace him alongside Wayne Rooney. And how we all laughed when Liverpool went for Crouch ... rather than Owen ... in the summer.
