Chelsea fullback Ashley Cole faces being blanked by the FA as he approaches 100 caps.

Cole will become England’s first centurion never to captain his country.

Left-back Cole has 98 caps but will not captain England when he makes his 100th appearance – and has made it clear he has no interest in being honoured with the armband.

The FA have no plans to mark the ­occasion of Cole’s 100th cap – whether it comes against Poland later this month or at a future date, says the Sunday Mirror.
