Lampard full of admiration for Chelsea teammate Cole after 100th cap

Frank Lampard feels Ashley Cole's 100-game milestone for England is a massive achievement.

The Chelsea left-back chalked up the century by starting in Wednesday night's 2-1 friendly win over Brazil at Wembley and his efforts have not gone unnoticed by Blues and Three Lions mate Lampard who is only six caps behind him.

"It's a fantastic achievement. He's been an unbelievably consistent performer both for club and country, and he started all of those games which makes it all the more incredible," he told the club's official website.

"The consistency levels he's shown, particularly when you consider Leighton Baines has been around for a while now, have been great.

"For me, he's been one of the best in the world, and to be the first full-back to reach 100 caps is brilliant."
