Chelsea boss Benitez: Cole deserves plaudits for England landmark

Chelsea boss Rafa Benitez has heaped praise on star fullback Ashley Cole for his England landmark next week.

Cole is set to become only the seventh player to reach 100 caps for England in the game against Brazil.

"Obviously 100 caps is an amazing number of games, so he has done something well throughout his career," said Benitez.

"He's a great player, he's doing very well for us and hopefully he can do well for England for years to come."
