Nothing Owen on Michael bets
William Hill are refunding stakes to punters who backed Michael Owen to make England's World Cup squad, following the news that he is out injured for the remainder of the season.
"We are returning stakes to punters who backed Michael to make the World Cup squad, be England's top scorer in the World Cup and to be top tournament scorer," said William Hill's spokesman Graham Sharpe.
"'The last prices we quoted for Michael to make the World Cup were 2/5 no, 7/4 yes and most of the bets we took were for yes. Obviously anyone who backed him not to go will receive their winnings."
