Former Owls' World Cup Hope

Former Owls' World Cup Hope

Former Wednesday striker Lloyd Owusu could be in-line for a shock call-up to the Ghana national side who are taking part in this summer's World Cup in Germany.

Owusu, now at League One side Brentford, will be linking up with the Ghana side who are playing German side Stuttgart in a friendly in Wurzburg tomorrow.

The call-up comes just in time for the former Wednesday and Reading man to make an impression ahead of the World Cup - and join up with star names including Michael Essien and Stephen Appiah.

Owusu told the Yorkshire Post: 'If the chance now comes for me to be involved at World Cup I'm going to take it. Making it to the biggest competition in world football is every professional player's dream.'

The Slough-born striker made 24 starts for the Owls after his move North from Brentford. He bagged nine goals, including his famous 'one-touch Owusu' goal against Sheffield United - where he came off the bench for his first start at Hillsborough and bagged a goal in the 2-0 win over the Blades.

He moved on to Reading in 2003 before moving back to Brentford in the summer of 2005, where he hopes to achieve promotion and play against the Owls next season.

One touch Owusu :) Wasn't he sick in that game aswell because he wasn't used to big crowds or something daft like that? I seem to remember it happening a few times! Some debut huh?

That one touch was about the only good one he had, wasn't it? Making it to the biggest competition in world football, checking in to a five star hotel and sitting round the pool after having a bit of asthma trouble is every professional player's dream.. ah, cynical old Auckland Owl :-)
