Little Mikey Owen likely to be fit for Germany

I'm not the biggest Michael Owen fan but he is a great striker and after spending most of the season picking up a fortune each week for sitting on the treatment table it looks like he'll still be attending the World Cup with Team England even if he is only 80% fit.

We saw with David Beckham in 2002 that you shouldn't take an injured player to the tournament but if reports coming out of Michael Owen Limited are anything to go by he is going to be in Germany and he is going to be representing England.

Should he go? It all depends for me on him getting 8 or 10 games under his belt and scoring 5 or 6 goals, not declaring fitness. There are other strikers who have played all season who quite literally 'deserve' it more than Owen.
