Ashley Cole became the seventh player to make 100 England appearances last night, and was the talk of Twitter for his achievement.

Thousands of fans sent messages to the left-back, who has made 48 of his international appearances as a Chelsea player.

Among those wishing him well were some of his team-mates, opponents, celebrities and well-known journalists.
