Chelsea ace Ashley Cole admits he'll be thinking of Arsenal legend David Rocastle when he earns his 100th England cap tonight against Brazil.

Rocastle, who died three days after Cole’s England debut, won the last of his 14 caps against Brazil in 1992, a coincidence Cole might savour tonight.

"I supported Arsenal and he was someone I wanted to be like and play like," Cole said. "I got the lucky chance to meet him, with him speaking to me for five minutes. After that he was all I wanted to be. I look back and think what a great career I’ve had. I will never forget speaking to him."
