11. Emile Heskey 

Heskey was Owen’s regular striking partner for club and country, scoring in the legendary 5-1 qualification success in Germany. His sole goal in the 2002 World Cup occurred in the last 16 against Denmark, when he scored in a 3-0 triumph.

Heskey was used by Eriksson and Fabio Capello in 2010 despite not being the most prolific player. He only scored seven goals for his country, but throughout the course of his 516-game Premier League career, he hit over 100.
