Bent drafted in for injured Owen


Tottenham striker Darren Bent has been drafted into the England squad for the final Euro 2008 qualifier against Croatia on Wednesday night.

Bent, who joined Spurs for £16million from Charlton this summer, has scored two goals in three games after a slow start to his White Hart Lane career.

He comes into the squad after Michael Owen was ruled out by a thigh strain suffered in the friendly victory over Austria on Friday.

Also back in the squad is Manchester United midfielder Owen Hargreaves after the former Bayern Munich man overcame tendinitis.

England need just a point to book their place in next summer's European Championship.
