Cole: Chelsea freeze won't affect England form

Chelsea midfielder Joe Cole insists his lack of minutes this season won't affect his England form.

He said: "Anyone who is not playing at their club wants to start more. I'm always professional, train hard and when I get my chance I'll take it with both hands. It certainly won't affect my England form, I might be even more fresh.

"I've had a full pre-season, the first one I've had in years because I've been disrupted by injuries before.

"So I'm looking forward and I feel sharp. I cannot wait for the games for England."
