Owen Hargreaves

Place of birthCalgary
NationalityEnglish
Weight73 kg
Height1.80 m
PositionDefender/Midfielder

Apart from captain David Beckham, Owen was the only member of the England 2006 World Cup squad who wasn't playing for a Premiership club.

Owen had never played in English club football.

He was born in Calgary, Canada of an English father and Welsh mother (he's also eligible to play for Germany through residential rights), although an ice hockey fan as a boy, he developed an interest in football due to his father's support of Bolton Wanderers.

Owen was snapped up by Bayern Munich as a 16 year-old, and shot to prominence in 2001 following outstanding performances when deputising for Stefan Effenberg in a Champions League semi-final defeat of Real Madrid.

Coach Sven-Goran Eriksson awarded him an England debut against Netherlands at Tottenham Hotspur in August 2001, then made his competitive bow in the historic 5-1 victory against Germany in his adopted home town.

A very versatile midfield performer, he has also played at right back for Bayern.

Owen joined Manchester United in July 2007 with a four-year contract.

He joined Manchester City in August 2011 with a one-year contract.
