Cole unsure over England World Cup place

(GSM) – Blues midfielder Joe Cole admits he is no certainty to make England’s final squad for the World Cup finals this summer.

Cole endured a frustrating, injury-blighted club campaign, and was used mainly as a substitute during the league run-in by manager Carlo Ancelotti. The former Hammers winger made the cut for Fabio Capello’s 30-man provisional squad and now he’s waiting to make the 23-man party.

However, a second-half substitute Cole played a significant role in England’s unconvincing 2-1 win over Japan in Austria on Sunday, after which he said: “Do I have any nerves? You’ve got to be pragmatic about it.

“I came here ten days ago to try to enjoy my time back here, train well, and it’s in the manager’s hands about the squad.

“There are a lot of players who will be hoping, a lot of players have got a good case. But, whatever happens, we are all right behind England and hopefully this will be our time.

“Have I done enough? I don’t want to go into that. I had a good finish to the season, I wasn’t starting but I was having an impact coming off the bench.

“I came here and did my thing and I’ve enjoyed it because it has been such a long time. Croatia was my last game and I ended up with ten stitches in my head. It is just nice to be back around the lads and it feels great.

“I don’t know what I will do on Tuesday. I’ve never been in this position. I don’t know. It is a funny atmosphere. There is nothing you can do.

“We’ve done everything we can do, we’ve trained hard, everyone has had an excellent week’s training and that’s all you can do. I’ll wake up, have my breakfast and there we go,” the 28-year-old revealed.
