Ashley Cole is eagerly anticipating Chelsea's meeting with Real Madrid in the final of the Guinness International Champions Cup in Miami on Wednesday.

The Blues will tackle manager Jose Mourinho's former side at the Sun Life Stadium and left-back Cole is looking forward to going toe-to-toe with Madrid superstar Cristiano Ronaldo as well as catching up with ex-Stamford Bridge boss Carlo Ancelotti.

"Real Madrid will be a huge test for us, they're obviously one of the best teams in the world and I've had some good games with Cristiano Ronaldo down the years, so I hope this will be another exciting match," Cole told Chelsea's official website.

"It will be great to catch up with Carlo Ancelotti, who is a great guy. We loved working with him at Chelsea and hopefully he can have a good first season in Spain."
