England win Star Sixes friendly tournament

Michael Owen

Michael Owen scored the winner as England beat the Rest of the World team 3-2 in the final of the Star Sixes tournament in Glasgow. The Star Sixes tournament is an annual friendly indoor tournament where former international football players are chosen to represent a senior national team for which they played.

Martin Jorgensen gave Rest of the World an early lead, but Owen leveled and Emile Heskey then hit the post. Gaizka Mendieta smashed a corner into the net off England goalkeeper David James to make it 2-1. Joe Cole quickly replied for England, with Owen then securing the victory.

Wales and Northern Ireland drew 1-1 in the fifth-place play-off and Scotland and Republic of Ireland also finished level in the third-place play-off after Niall Quinn equalised for Ireland.
