Chelsea fullback Cole gunning for Donovan revenge

Chelsea fullback Ashley Cole is gunning for the USA's Landon Donovan today.

Part of Cole's motivation to be fit for the World Cup was that he could face Landon Donovan, according to United States striker Charlie Davies. Donovan was involved in the incident in which Cole broke his leg in February.

Sochaux striker Davies spent three weeks with Cole at a clinic in Capbreton, France, along with Michael Essien, as the trio worked on their fitness ahead of this month's tournament.

Neither Davies nor Ghana's Essien made it, but Cole did.

Davies, who failed to recover after being badly injured in a car crash last year, said: "Not only did he want to get back because it's the World Cup, but especially because Landon was the one who broke his ankle."
