England's injuries mount
Kevin Keegan has named four players who are almost certain to miss England's game with Brazil on Saturday.
Keegan says that he will reassess the situation on Friday, but it seems likely that none of the four will be in contention.
But Cole, whose place in Keegan's final 22 is by no means certain, is not about to risk long-term injury just to make the squad:
"What I have to think about is the long-term. It's not just about Euro 2000. I have United to consider and the start of next season.
Tony Adams is also a worry for Keegan: "Tony Adams didn't train, it's not a major problem, he just had a slight problem with his back yesterday.
"I know what Tony Adams can do. I wouldn't be doing my job properly if I risked him in a game when he's not 100 per cent fit.
Meanwhile Jamie Redknapp will see a specialist about his troublesome knee and Steven Gerrard also missed training with a thigh problem.
It seems that most of the England squad have slight problems after a long and exacting season.
"You get through your last day's training and you say, right, I've got every one of these people fit to play, now who do I want to select? It's a long way away."
