Owen criticises England display

Fresh from returning to full training with Manchester United, Michael Owen turned his attention to the international scene by criticising England's 3-2 defeat to Netherlands.

England were beaten 3-2 thanks to a late goal from Arjen Robben, but that is not exactly a true reflection of the game as the Three Lions were second best for long spells. They trailed 2-0 only to rally with quick-fire goals from Gary Cahill and Ashley Young in the final 10 minutes.

Robben's goal gave the Dutch a deserved win, but in the first game under the care of interim manager Stuart Pearce the media coverage was largely positive.

Owen, who has fallen out of the England scene following a string of injuries, saw that as a surprise and gave his own assessment of the game.

"Surprised at the reaction after last night's match," Owen wrote on Twitter. "Experimental team or not, getting beat at Wembley is disappointing.

"I mean, it's hardly like we played brilliant and were unlucky to lose."

It was viewed as an experimental team, but Owen does not feel that can be used as an excuse.

He said: "No matter what team is out there, losing has to be frowned upon. Have we slipped that far behind other teams that people now accept getting beat so long as we 'show some pride'? I hope not."
