West Ham striker Cole refuses to accept England World Cup spot guaranteed

West Ham United striker Carlton Cole refuses to accept an England World Cup place is guaranteed.

But he insists he will run through brick walls if that is what it takes to secure his place at the tournament.

He admitted: "I'm not at all confident about making South Africa.

"All I can do is keep doing what I'm doing. If I'm given the chance, I'd like to think I'll take it.

"I have to get selected first. I can only do that if my club form is top-notch.

"If we can get the blend right in the England team, whether it be me who comes in, or (Emile) Heskey or (Jermain) Defoe, I think the England strike-force will be very healthy."
