Michael Owen v Brazil
England 1 Brazil 2
2002 World Cup, quarter-final
The ball bounced off a spooked Lucio and Owen didn't squander the chance, using his fearsome pace to glide through and dink it deftly over Marcos. For a moment England were in dreamland thanks to Owen.
His ability to score against the best opponents ensures that the name of Michael Owen will always be cherished by England fans.
In truth Lucio was terrified of Owen. Brazil's accomplished centre-half became so scared by Owen's proximity that he took an eye off Heskey's over-hit pass.
