Wigan's Heskey keen on Owen reunion

Wigan Athletic striker Emile Heskey is keen on an England reunion with Newcastle's Michael Owen tomorrow against Israel.

He told thefa.com: "It's always been a joy playing alongside Michael Owen. I've played with Michael many times going back England Under-18s level.

"We kind of gelled then and it's gone on through most of my career. It's been a joy to play with him.

"He's a brilliant player, a fantastic goalscorer. If I get a chance on Saturday alongside Michael, it will be excellent."
