Quiz! Can you name Michael Owen's 50 most frequent England team-mates?

Shearer Owen Hoddle England

Oh, Mo. Where did it all go wrong? 

Was it the moment he admitted to being “in Hell” while watching harmless ‘90s favourite Cool Runnings? Mocking a 13-year-old? (opens in new tab) Joining Real Madrid? Or doing that weird helicopter advert (opens in new tab)

Either way, serialisation of his new book Reboot: My Life, My Time (opens in new tab) has not gone down well on social media. Alan Shearer waded in on Twitter after Owen lamented his time on Tyneside, and the latest quotes have him criticising a “childish” David Beckham for the midfielder’s petulant France ‘98 red card against Argentina. (Frankly, they’re not particularly unreasonable either.)

RECOMMENDEDWhen David Beckham was the most hated man in England – and had the greatest season of his life

That tournament – or more specifically, that game – changed Owen’s life forever. But it was also a pinnacle he never came close to scaling again: he won 89 caps, scored 40 goals and played in another two quarter-finals for England without getting close to glory. 

For today’s quiz, we’d like you to name Owen’s 50 most frequent team-mates for England from 1998-2008 – but you’re only getting eight minutes to do it. Tell us how you fare @FourFourTwo (opens in new tab) and we’ll retweet your answers so long as you don’t give away answers.
