Michael Owen World Cup 1998 vs Argentina

July 27, 2009

Alex Ferguson would surely have loved Michael Owen at 19 years of age. What an explosive striker, scarey pace and deadly in front of goal. This goal in the 1998 World Cup shows Owen off at his peak, dribbling at players with no fear and knowledge that he could beat any defender or goalkeeper. Breath taking.

However, Owen started brightly in his pre-season 2009 for Manchester United with a debut goal. In this goal he links up with Carrick initially showing that in recent years he has been looking to play deeper….but Fergie surely will be looking for him to concentrate on his play in the 18 yard box. With this goal he highlights that he still has this talent.
