Chelsea midfielder Joe Cole hopes England can qualify for the World Cup with victory over Croatia tonight.

He said: "I will be sitting there in front of the telly on Wednesday night like every other punter up and down the country. It's what it's all about, the World Cup.

"I think everything that happens in between major tournaments with England is great but the real stuff that matters is when you go out there and it's about time this time really stepped up a bit so it would be great for us to get the job done on Wednesday night and then we can focus on South Africa."
