G-owen down

1998 World Cup, France
Owen, then just 18, tumbles over Argentina defender Roberto Ayala to earn a penalty that Alan Shearer emphatically converts to equalise in the last 16 fixture. Owen would go on to score the defining goal of his career in a match that ended 2-2, before 10-man England crashed out in the customary heartbreaking penalty shoot-out.

2002 World Cup, Japan
Owen falls under a clumsy challenge from Mauricio Pochettino just before half-time, allowing David Beckham to score the game’s only goal from the spot. England’s revenge at their 1998 exit is matched by Beckham’s, the midfielder having been controversially sent off four years earlier against the same opponents.
