Michael Owen has a bit of a dig at Peter Crouch

Michael Owen has dropped a not-so-subtle hint that he would like Peter Crouch to remain on the subs' bench beyond tomorrow's match with Sweden. Owen told the BBC: 'You would have thought there won't be so many long balls with Wayne back. We might keep it on the deck a bit more. If we're playing well, I will look as good as ever. I'm as sharp as ever.' Claws away, Michael.
