COLE SET TO JOIN 100 CLUB

Posted on: Thu 31 Jan 2013

Ashley Cole is in line to earn his 100th England cap after being named in Roy Hodgson's squad for next week's friendly against Brazil at Wembley.

Cole earned his 99th cap in the World Cup qualifier against Poland back in October, and will hope to become only the seventh player to reach the milestone for the national side when they take on a Brazilian team now under the stewardship of former Chelsea manager Luiz Felipe Scolari.

Frank Lampard, who has 93 international caps to his name, was also included in the 24-man squad, while Gary Cahill was the other Chelsea representative.

Meanwhile, our Brazilian trio of David Luiz, Ramires and Oscar were all included in the squad named by Scolari at the beginning of last week ahead of next Wednesday's game.
