Ashley Cole
England's Ashley Cole
Born: 20/12/80
Position: Defender
Club: Arsenal
Caps: 25
Goals: 0

Has established himself as the number one choice at left-back although is likely to face increasing pressure for his spot from Chelsea's Wayne Bridge.

Cole's ability to get forward has helped England cope with their lack of a left winger, although there are still question marks over the defensive side of his game.

The Arsenal defender needs to curb a hot-headed streak but is vastly experienced despite his relatively tender years having made the breakthrough at a young age.

Cole enjoyed a fine season for record-breaking Arsenal, who remained unbeaten as they clinched the Premiership title.
