Owen Hargreaves celebrates return with goal

As much as I am not a Manchester City fan, I couldn’t be happier for Canadian born Owen Hargreaves having made his comeback after three long years of career threatening injuries. Hargreaves’s comeback proved nothing short of a success. He played a key part in City’s win over Birmingham in the Carling Cup. Not only that but he started, played 55 minutes and scored an incredible goal.

Manager Roberto Mancini praised Hargreaves, saying “I am happy for Owen because he played well without any problem. He scored a fantastic goal and I hope he can be lucky and stay fit for us in the future.”

Watch video below of Hargreaves’s memorable goal.

The idea for Goalden is to help other soccer players of all ages improve the many different aspects of their game. We began coaching youth teams and watching youth soccer all over Ontario. We watched semi-professional and professional teams and noticed how far the game still has to develop here. From that, we decided we want to help others obtain the best information as early as possible in their soccer careers. We want to educate readers about the game of soccer and the fine details that are often overlooked by coaches in North America.
