Liverpool midfielder Cole hopes Lille move leads to England recall

Liverpool midfielder Joe Cole hopes his move to Lille will lead him back into the England squad.

Cole signed for Lille on a season-long loan.

"Inevitably, I want to return to the English national team," said Cole. "It's one of my goals.

"The most important thing is to have the opportunity to play and also find a competition like the Champions League. In our group, I know all our opponents to be faced.

"I love the competition, it will be hard for us but I am confident we can hope to advance as far as possible in the event."
