Owen to miss 2006 World Cup?

Michael Owen has broken a bone in his foot and wont be fit until April, a full two months before the World Cup finals are due to start in Germany.

I've not always been the biggest fan of Michael Owen but after seeing him a couple of times this season he does create another dimension for Newcastle and should go to Germany - however I wouldn't start him.

I'm convinced that Peter Crouch and Wayne Rooney are the strike pair that England should use and have Owen as backup or maybe even Defoe. Players should be picked on current form and performances and definitely not reputation.
