England legend Alan Shearer wants Chelsea star Ashley Cole to be axed for the clash against San Marino.

England legend Alan Shearer wants Chelsea star Ashley Cole to be axed for the clash against San Marino.

Shearer has called for Cole to be banned from England's World Cup qualifier as punishment for his tweet describing the FA as a 'bunch of t****.'

Shearer said: "I think the FA can put a big statement out here by actually not fining him but actually banning him on Friday against San Marino.

"Because we've seen players fined £50,000, £60,000, £70,000. That's not a deterrent to them.

"Stopping them from playing football will be a deterrent. If they do it quickly - which they haven't done in the case, which has taken 14 months - if they do it in four to five days, I think it puts a big statement out to the rest of the players."
