Random Photo of the Day: The Ghost of England’s Past Meets His Supposed Successor.

To the left is Michael Owen, the Original English Wonderboy, and although currently playing for Manchester United, has been left in the proverbial England NT woods since 2007. To the right is young Theo Walcott, then-aspiring football player, obviously an Owen fan, and now an Arsenal striker and an England National Team Player.

It’s amazing that these two generations of football players were still able to play against each other in the English Premier League, albeit not having been given the chance to play alongside each other for their country.

This photo is equal parts adorable and bittersweet.
