Skirge Posted May 1, 2007 Share Posted May 1, 2007 See how they are trying to make out yet again as if the only thing on Owens mind is England, yet in the interview they ask him so he answers and says nothign at all about it being the only thing he wnats. All he said is how its upto Mclarren and how much he loves playing for his Country, they just love trying to prove that he does not care about playing for Newcastle. Yet SSN site has this headline Owen eyes England return Michael Owen has revealed he would 'jump at the chance' of featuring for England this summer, after making his comeback for Newcastle on Monday. The striker came through a full 90 minutes on his first outing since suffering a serious knee injury on England duty at last summer's World Cup. Owen claims he has worked extremely hard on his fitness and after coming through the 1-0 defeat to Reading unscathed, focus has shifted to England's friendly with Brazil on 1st June. "I'm hopefully going to be fine to be playing in the last two games for Newcastle and then it's down to whether Steve McClaren picks me," Owen told Sky Sports News. "And if I'm fit and playing for Newcastle, obviously I'd jump at the chance to play for my country. Its a fantastic honour." The 27-year-old claims he is starting his career again and insists he feels far stronger than before he suffered cruciate knee ligament damage against Sweden. "When you have an injury like this you get to start again, you get a clean sheet of paper," he added. "We've built up everything, I weigh a stone heavier now than when I got injured and none of it is fat I can assure you. "Now you get to start over again. I feel a massive difference from when I last played, I feel as though I can use my body and be strong and win a lot of headers. "I felt a different type of player. I felt really well."
