Scanning Owen is "Not Good"!
Newcastle striker has been struggling for match fitness throughout the tournament following a broken foot suffered earlier this year - but he has now suffered what looks like a huge blow.
There are now major concerns about him after his knee seemed to give way underneath him as he turned in the opening minutes of the match in Cologne.
There was no Sweden player near him at the time and he immediately crawled to the sidelines and, just moments later, physio Gary Lewin called for a substitution and Peter Crouch came on.
Michael Owen is set for a scan on his knee on Wednesday after being stretchered off during England's clash with Sweden.
The Newcastle striker has been struggling for match fitness throughout the tournament following a broken foot suffered earlier this year - but he has now suffered what looks like a huge blow.
Early reports suggest he has at least a twisted knee, although many already fear a possible medial ligament injury - which would mean around six months out of the game.
However, England are unlikely to comment any further until scans are carried out on the injury on Wednesday.
In the short-term Owen's future at the World Cup finals look very much in the balance, meaning Peter Crouch and the untested Theo Walcott are England's only potential strike-partners for Wayne Rooney - who himself is well short of match fitness following his recent injury.
So,the bottom line is Owen....is in deep shit because he'll miss the tournament of his life.I really wish he could continue on but just have to pray for the better.
