Chelsea's Joe Cole not ready to talk up England chances

Chelsea midfielder Joe Cole isn't willing to talk up his chances of an England return just yet.

After their Cup win over QPR, Cole said: "Our country is on a high with the way the lads are playing - it's great. I'd like to get back but that's all in good time.

"For me it's just a case of taking it day by day and keep working hard. When England comes along I'll take that challenge.

"I don't want to get into talking about England. It would be stupid to say I'm back and I want to be here, there and everywhere. I just want to get stronger every day and take what I can out of training. I can't rush it.

"Chelsea are playing well and England are playing well - it's fantastic. All I can do is get to the best quality I can and I'm confident when I get there, I'll get an awful lot of games this year."
