England coach Capello: If Chelsea winger Cole plays it is up to me - not Terry

England coach Fabio Capello admits he was disappointed John Terry touted Chelsea teammate Joe Cole for selection during his media outburst on Sunday.

Capello has made it clear such a decision will be his alone, and rebuked Terry for singling out one player in a 23-man squad.

"It is another mistake when you speak about one player because there is no respect for the players that play before," he said.

"Always the players think individually, I have to think about the team, it's important. When you speak you have to be careful.

"I respect Joe Cole. But he is one of the 23 players I have here."
