Owen to Miss Key England Matches

Owen to miss key England matchesMichael Owen has been ruled out of England's two Euro 2008 qualifiers in October with a torn groin muscle.

The 27-year-old striker will see a specialist on Thursday to determine whether he also needs an operation. It had been thought that Owen had a hernia but it now appears he has a stomach weakness that may need surgery.

"He will be back for the first game after the England internationals at the very, very earliest," said Newcastle manager Sam Allardyce.
