ONCE MICHAEL OWEN famously made statues of the Argentina defence and fired home for England during the 1998 World Cup at the age of just 18, he had announced himself on the world stage . . . and now he’s a Stoke City player after completing his free transfer to the Britannia Stadium this summer.
It will be difficult for that fact to sink in with Potters fans: the recruitment of a player who, since that famous night in Saint-Étienne, has earned the Premier League Golden Boot twice, played as part of Real Madrid’s famous ‘Galacticos’ and been named BBC Sports Personality of the Year.
