Chelsea's Cole gets England start tonight

Chelsea's England hero Joe Cole will start tonight against Croatia in Zagreb.

The Sun says Cole gets the nod on the left of midfield after scoring twice as a sub in the 2-0 win against Andorra on Saturday.

Boss Fabio Capello looks like fielding a positive side with Theo Walcott also starting in Zagreb.

The Arsenal star played as a second striker as well as on the right side of midfield in the final training session.

Wes Brown replaces Glen Johnson at right-back and Rio Ferdinand should be fit again.

Capello switched between a 4-4-2 formation, which had Emile Heskey and Wayne Rooney up front, and a 4-3-2-1 which saw David Beckham on the right.
