Michael Owen announced himself to the world in 1998 with... well, you know what with.

The striker's incredible solo goal against Argentina had England and Liverpool fans dreaming of the prospect of one of Europe's deadliest finishers bagging the goals for years to come.

Suffering the first of his many, many hamstring injuries in the late 90's, Owen would go on to struggle with long-term fitness for the rest of his career.

Still only 33, the former Ballon d'Or winner retired at the end of last season with Stoke, though in truth, the Michael Owen fans remember disappeared a long time ago.

Lightening quick, Owen was one of Europe's truly great finishers, and you can only imagine the career he would have had were it not for the injuries.

Still, a career taking you from Liverpool to Real Madrid, and subsequently, Manchester United, is not to be sniffed at.
