EMO on his return

Speaking to the ensemble waiting to hear whether he`ll be fit for England in June, Michael Owen said he was pleased with his first proper step back to full match fitness. Surprise, surprise, the Three Lions do get a mention:

'I didn't expect to play the whole game. I'll take it as a positive that I know I have come back twice as strong as when I left the field in Germany. We had in our mind that I would play for about an hour. But with the way the game panned out, with a couple injuries and us needing to nick a goal, I was feeling fine and carried on. I knew I would be okay and the physio told the manager I could play 90 minutes, if needed.

That is the way it transpired but it wasn't the plan. It has been a long time but it has all been worth it now. I'm looking forward to the rest of the season and the next campaign as well. I hope to play for Newcastle in the next two games. That is the immediate thing. The summer will take care of itself and if I'm picked for England, I've never turned down my country in my life.'

Good to see him back. Should have scored in the first minute though!

Would have been offside anyway. Played well enough for his first game in 10 months.
