England vs Switzerland: Live Score and Live Updates


England’s newly appointed coach Fabio Capello will made the squad public on Friday for the friendly match against Switzerland, which is set to be held on 6 February. The fans are curious to know if Capello will stick to the host of star players or go for young, talented players. Michael Owen is one of those star players in the line to might be left out of Capello’s squad for Switzerland friendly. The Newcastle United striker is currently going through a bad patch in domestic football. In the last 12 matches, he could hit only once for Newcastle Untied, amounting four goals from 18 matches so far this season.

However, Kevin Keegan, Newcastle United manager, has backed Owen, saying that he was fit and sharp enough and would capitalize the chances if given. However, the fact is that he is yet to get out of his patchy form, even though he has been playing continuously for the last few weeks for Newcastle.

Mirror reported:

He's fit enough, he's sharp enough, and maybe going with England and being part of that scene will give him opportunities. You don't need to tell me he will score if he gets opportunities."

Keegan said the rest of the Newcastle team - and not just Owen - are to blame for the ex-Liverpool star's goal drought.

"Michael will be at my door saying 'we are not creating anything.' That's what I would do if I was him because we aren't. When we got the quality going in the first half our football was excellent. You would have thought we were a top-four side, but the difference is we couldn't sustain it."

I think, Michael Owen has already proven what he has in him. What he needs is to prove his worth once again. What he needs is to get some goals in order to boost up his confidence level. Besides, it is also true that there are some young and talented strikers roaming around and Owen must face strong challenge to win a place in the starting line up of England team. However, I think, Michael Owen should at least be included in the England squad and brought on as substitutes in the friendly match, if not in the starting line up of England.
