Owen: I'll never quit England duty

Published Add your comment

Michael Owen has insisted he would "never" give up hope of an England recall.

Owen's Three Lions career looks to be all but over, with the striker having not played for his country for four-and-a-half years. But the man who is England's fifth top scorer with 40 goals from 89 caps has no intention of announcing his international retirement.

"I'd never do that, really," said the Stoke striker, who has not started a first-team match for almost a year. "But I certainly don't go to bed thinking I'm going to be playing for England again."
