Michael Owen: England can count on Liverpool's Jamie Carragher if he goes to the World Cup

Manchester United striker Michael Owen has backed his former Liverpool team-mate Jamie Carragher to shine at the 2010 World Cup, should he choose to come out of international retirement.

Reports have surfaced suggesting England manager Fabio Capello has made a plea to the defender to make himself available for selection for the tournament in South Africa as Rio Ferdinand struggles with injury.

The story is too old to be commented.
