Man Utd striker Owen would love to hear from England coach Capello

Manchester United striker Michael Owen would love to hear from England coach Fabio Capello.

Owen admits he would seize his chance should Capello change his mind.

He told the Observer: "I was in every squad for over a decade and all of a sudden it stopped one day.

"I would never turn my back on it, but obviously there's a scar there that still hurts a bit. But I don't get upset now when I'm not in the squad, like I used to.

"If I got a call-up I'd be there within five minutes.

"Fabio Capello picked his first squad and I was on the bench. I thought: 'This might be a sign that he doesn't fancy me.' The next time I wasn't in the squad, and that's just been that."
