England coach Sven-Goran Eriksson has said he thinks Rio Ferdinand should be suspended for missing a drugs test.
He also said he thought the Football Association took "too long" to punish players who broke the rules, and not just in Rio's case.
In two sunday papers, he said: "Look at Joe Cole. He's just been banned for something that happened last April."
Ferdinand claims he simply forgot to attend the compulsory drugs test, which was meant to happen on 23 September.
