Chelsea fullback Cole will go through pain barrier for England

Ashley Cole says he'll play through the paid barrier for England.

The Chelsea left-back insists he can handle the workload despite a persistent ankle injury which has troubled him all year.

Cole, 30, said: "My bad ankle isn't going to go away but I still feel fit.

"I reckon I've got a few more years in me yet. I've definitely got at least three seasons, maybe more.

"I've been playing regularly for 10 or 11 years but this is the first season I've been an ever-present in the Premier League."
