Michael Owen does not expect to be fit for England´s Euro 2008 double-header against Estonia and Russia next month.

The 27-year-old has undergone apparently successful surgery in Germany for a stomach problem which could have caused a hernia and is recovering from a torn adductor muscle in his groin.

Initial predictions of a six-week lay-off appear to have been overly pessimistic but Owen said in the News of The World: "I don´t want to tempt fate by making a premature forecast. Medical advice will decide how quickly I will be back in action. I´d rather remain cautious at this stage than set any unrealistic targets."
