Owen tells World Cup tale after PK decision mars Man City-Spurs

0 Comments

Michael Owen was rightly aggrieved for countryman Raheem Sterling when the speedy attacker wasn’t given a PK against Tottenham Hotspur on Saturday.

Kyle Walker shoved Man City’s Sterling on a second-half breakaway, but a stumbling Sterling still poked the ball at Hugo Lloris.

It was 2-2 moments later, Top Four fortunes shifted by a non-call. Owen hates diving, but took to Twitter after the game to explain how refs think in those situations (or at least how one reacted in a World Cup match).

Oddly enough, Spurs boss Mauricio Pochettino plays a role in the nearly 15-year-old story.
