An evening with Football Legend & Property Tycoon Michael Owen
The player's story is every schoolboy's dream; his has been a magical ride equalled only by that of Harry Potter. At 18, he became the youngest player ever to play for England, then the youngest to score for England, then the youngest Englishman to play in a World Cup. Even Brazilian soccer god Pele said of him: "My favourite player is Michael Owen." Boy Wonder indeed.
But since his early days Michael has consistently proved he is also more than that. He bounced back from a devastating hamstring injury to score a hat-trick against old rivals Germany when England historically triumphed 5-1 in a World Cup qualifier in September 2001. And he went on to become the first England player to score three goals against Germany since Sir Geoff Hurst in the 1966 World Cup final, demonstrating that Boy Wonder had come of age.
Triumph after triumph followed. Michael's wonder goal against Argentina in the France '98 World Cup tournament firmly launched him on the international stage, and later the same year he was voted BBC Sports Personality Of The Year. Then, in the 1998/1999 season he suffered every striker's nightmare the hamstring injury that was to mar his game for the next two years.
Recovery was slow, but he proved resilient. In December 2001, after a series of blistering performances including the one against Germany Michael was named European Player of the Year (now the globaly known Ballon d'or); the first England player to win the accolade since Kevin Keegan in 1979. Four months later the player stood in for an injured David Beckham as England captain, becoming the youngest captain in 40 years. In June he was at the forefront of England's World Cup team for the World Cup in Korea and Japan. Although they didn't win, the team defied the odds by making it to the quarter finals.
