Michael Owen is one of the greatest players to strap up his boots for England. He hasn't scored an international goal in three years, but this year he showed great form in the Champions League for Manchester United.
Owen also has demonstrated great leadership abilities, especially when he captained Three Lions at age 22 when David Beckham was hurt.
No England strikers have scored in the Cup, and they were shut out by an Algerian goaltender, Rais M'Bohli, who only has three international caps. Here are some reasons he should have been on England's 2010 World Cup squad.
