3. Michael Owen
Michael Owen was a sensational English striker whom everybody thought that he could be the answer to all England’s woes during international championships. He was like the Ronaldo of Brazil, who could create as well as score chances. Owen received plenty of positive reviews during his performance in the 1998 World Cup because of his sheer pace and ability to be at the right place in the right time. However, a string of hamstring injuries and ankle dislocation would take all the pace off his game. He comes at the 3rd spot in our countdown.
