Owen denied England meant less to players now than in the past and, despite his reservations, was still keen to add to his caps.
He joked: "Some people think I've retired from football full stop.
"I'd never do that, really. But I certainly don't go to bed thinking 'I'm going to be playing for England again'.
"It certainly would be a bonus. It would mean that I would need to get back on the pitch and rediscover my deadly goalscoring touch and everything else."
