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.

Goal vs Argentina, 1998 World Cup

This goal had it all – pace, technique and accuracy. After receiving a brilliant ball from Beckham, Owen made full use of the opportunity. He was just 18.

Dive vs Argentina, 2002 World Cup

Argentina were Owen’s victims again. This time Owen made news for his dive to win a penalty.


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