Michael Owen?? Is it too early for him?

As many of you may or may not know, in the absence of David Beckham for England's friendly tomorrow night Michael Owen has been named captain of England.

The man (boy) is only 21 or 22. Personally I dont think he has matured enough at International level to be made captain, especially with players like Garry Neville and Gareth Southgate in the team. Im not totally against it, just interested to know others points of view on the matter.

Do you think he would have got it if it were not played at Anfield? Would Neville have got it if it was played at Old Trafford?

------------------
20 to 40!!!!!!!!!!!

I'm not that big a fan of Owen, but I'd pick him over Neville any day

Neville is a walking idiot, Owen is mature beyond his years, and anyway, it's only a friendly so it is pretty pointless, he won't be captain anyway
