With uber-crock Michael Owen seemingly headed for fitness yet again following his groin op, Big Sam has issued Ram-toothed Steve McClaren with a warning about selected our prize asset for international duty:

‘I don’t know if Michael will be right. I’ll watch him in training on Friday and that will give us a better idea of where he is at. If our medical team feel Michael is not ready, England will get a warning from us we don’t want him taking part in the games. I know Steve will stay in contact with us about Michael’s fitness but I realise how much he wants him to play. But we do not want him playing if he’s not up to it.’
