Chelsea left-back Cole withdrawn from England squad

Ashley Cole is out of England's squad for Friday's World Cup qualifier with Montenegro at Wembley.

The Chelsea left-back has been battling a rib injury for a little while now and succumbed during Sunday's 3-1 win at Norwich City which has forced him out of Roy Hodgson's squad.

Cole underwent a scan on Monday which had some negative results and he will remain at Stamford Bridge to receive treatment with Everton's Leighton Baines likely to get the nod ahead of Arsenal's Kieran Gibbs who has been called up.
