After scoring that goal against Argentina in the 1998 World Cup, Owen has forever cemented his place in his country's affections.

But how did he come to put the ball in the net and what were the particular skills required to score a goal that Pele himself would have been proud of?With the help of "Michael Owen's Soccer Skills" the reader can find out how to mould him or herself into the complete goalscorer.

Beginning with a potted history of his career and progression through Lilleshall and England Youth and Under-18 teams, Michael goes on to demonstrate how a balanced diet and a thorough warm-up routine are essential in the build-up to a match.

There follows a series of 20 skills routines designed to improve key areas of the game, such as heading, shotmaking and dribbling, followed by "Michael's Top Tips" on how to fox the opposition defence: from making dummy runs and lying deep to how to beat the offside trap and sneaking in on the blind side of defenders.
