England striker Michael Owen celebrated his return to action just nine days after undergoing hernia surgery with a goal as Newcastle struck late to see off Everton 3-1.

The 27-year-old deflected home fellow substitute Emre´s 90th-minute free-kick after coming off the bench to seal an important win for the Magpies.

His strike came four minutes after Emre had smashed home a 25-yard effort to restore his side´s lead after Andrew Johnson had cancelled out Nicky Butt´s opener.
