Man Utd boss Ferguson: Owen still among best England strikers

Manchester United boss Sir Alex Ferguson feels Michael Owen should remain on England's radar.

Owen struck twice at Leeds United in midweek.

"I was really pleased for him," said Ferguson.

"Absolutely, he's still one of England's best finishers. Unfortunately for us, he's had one or two injuries and with Welbeck, Hernandez, Berbatov and Rooney, he's not getting the games he deserves.

"It's just unfortunate for him. Nevertheless, he's a fantastic player to have around."
