West Ham striker Cole confident he can offer something different to England

West Ham United striker Carlton Cole says he can offer something different to England.

West Ham United striker Carlton Cole says he can offer something different to England.

He told whufc.com: "I base my game on my physical presence in and around the penalty area and I like to think I've got something to offer the team, but I know that I've got to start to score more goals if I am to start in the England team.

"I aim to start also doing that with West Ham and I am up for the challenge. I just want to put on that England shirt.

"I was in the squad at the end of the season for the games with Kazakhstan and Andorra but I was only just coming back from injury then. There were also five strikers selected and I did not get a chance. But I'm hoping I can get a run out in the coming games."
