The 33-year-old former England striker admitted last year that he was "guilty" of going down when he could have stayed on his feet for both of his penalties against Argentina at the 1998 and 2002 World Cups.
The South Americans had the last laugh in the first tournament but in Japan the act allowed David Beckham to score the only goal.
Pochettino was the man whose leg Owen tumbled over in Sapporo and has the chance to exact revenge in the striker's last match before he retires.
"For me, he has been one of the greatest England footballers and I was unlucky to suffer his skill," the Saints boss said with a smile.
"It will be a great pleasure for me to say 'Hi' to him and meet him as well. Hopefully we can argue about that controversial play that happened in Japan way back.
"Perhaps in the tunnel going into the dressing room I will trip him up. Destiny will be very cruel if [he was to score the winner] and I don't think that I deserve that to happen to me."
