Cole wins call-up
Andy Cole (left): Earns his place in Hoddle's last line-up
Glenn Hoddle's last action as England coach was to hand an international recall to Andy Cole.
Hoddle was axed from his post on Tuesday evening, but caretaker boss Howard Wilkinson is understood to have retained the same line-up which had been picked by his predecessor for next Wednesday's friendly against France at Wembley.
Arsenal defender Tony Adams and Liverpool striker Michael Owen are back after injury, Ipswich midfielder Kieron Dyer has been given his first chance at senior level, and there are recalls for both Manchester United striker Cole and Liverpool midfielder Ince.
Les Ferdinand, Phil Neville and Frank Lampard have also all been left out.
But it is the recall for Cole that may prove to be Hoddle's final legacy in an act of forgiveness for his past sins.
Cole was outspoken in his criticism of Hoddle's decision to inform the media of his exclusion from the last squad due to his poor strike rate before telling the player himself.
Cole branded Hoddle a "coward" on the morning of the friendly against the Czech Republic and there was widespread speculation that, like Blackburn's Chris Sutton, he had ended his England involvement.
