Hat-trick for 'Diamond' striker

Yesterday (December 8th) marked a good day for Michael Owen - who is an ambassador with The First Group.

Owen, an owner in The Diamond at Dubai Sports City scored a hat-trick for Manchester United when his goals saw off the German competition as United defeated Wolfsburg.

Sir Alex Ferguson's men failed to keep the ball under control for prolonged periods but Owen was the man of the match as he scored with just seven minutes left of the first half.

His last goal saw the player run half the length of the pitch in his trademark fashion to make it a 3-1 win for United.

Commenting on the epic performance, Ferguson noted that Michael proved his worth and stated that he is “one of the very best strikers around in terms of his positional play and finishing".

Dubai Sports City is set to be the biggest sports destination worldwide featuring a 60,000 capacity stadium for rugby, track events and football.

Set in this location, the Diamond is 14 stories high and will feature 128 fully furnished luxury turnkey apartments, from Executive Suites to exclusive penthouses.
