Speaking following another blank against Brazil England`s Michael Owen isn`t worrying where his next goal is going to come from, despite the fact he got absolutely next to nothing in terms of service. Speaking following the game he said:
‘I am not concerned about my game. I know it has been a long time out, but I am just happy to be back out on the pitch now, not feeling any problems in my knee. I have had plenty of time to get used to it again, as I was back at the end of April with Newcastle in the Premiership. I have been on the go playing in the first team since then and am up with the pace of the game and I feel fine.
It is probably best that people do judge me just by my goals, because that is what I have always done, score goals. I am just pleased to be back, without any aches and pains, feeling fit within myself and so goals are the least of my worries. Of course, I would be lying if I said I was not looking forward to my next goal. But I would also be lying if I said I was worrying about it.’
