Owen debut strike gives Man United opening tour win
Wayne Rooney and Portuguese winger Nani giving them a 2-0 lead after 27 minutes. Malaysia striker Amri Yahyah struck either side of the break, the first a sublime dipping volley from 30 metres out, to level the match before Owen rounded the keeper to score five minutes from time. Owen was given the auspicious number seven shirt worn by George Best, Bryan Robson, Eric Cantona, David Beckham and Cristiano Ronaldo, and Ferguson said it was a challenge he would relish. "The shirt has been worn by a lot of high-profile players in the past and it's an honour to be handed that opportunity. "Michael is a high-profile player and the sort of player who will relish that challenge," Ferguson added. After the match, United chief executive David Gill announced that Monday's cancelled game in Jakarta would be replaced by a second contest against the Malaysia XI at the same Kuala Lumpur venue next Monday.
