Greatest moments from Michael Owen's career
Michael Owen has had a glorious career. One that involved big clubs like Liverpool, Real Madrid, Manchester United, Newcastle United and Stoke City. He was among England’s most prolific strikers, and held the record for being the youngest player to score for England during his time. Owen is the Premier League’s seventh best goal scorer of all time with 150 goals to his name.
Lets have a quick look at the highlights of his career.

Owen’s moustache was probably more famous than any other goal he scored.
