Michael Owen: England vs. Argentina, 1998

 

18 year-old Michael Owen's stunning goal against Argentina in the second round of the 1998 World Cup. A great ball from Beckham, a great first touch and a display of devastating pace right through the heart of the Argentinian defence.  Cap it off with a cool, clinical finish and you've got one great goal. 


It wasn't enough for England though; in a controversy riddled game where Beckham was sent off, Argentina went on to win the game in a penalty shoot-out after the teams finished 2-2 at the end of extra time.
