Gerrard delighted for old Liverpool pal Owen

Steven Gerrard was delighted for his old Liverpool pal Michael Owen after he netted for England in Saturday's victory over Israel.

Gerrard said of the Newcastle striker: "It was great to see Michael getting on the scoresheet and getting a few chances.

"I thought the goal he scored was actually the hardest of his chances, but Michael Owen is a great goalscorer and hopefully he can deliver the same for us against Russia on Wednesday."
