Cole out for six weeks

Published Add your comment

West Ham striker Carlton Cole is expected to be out for six weeks with the groin injury he aggravated on England duty.

Cole was carrying the injury before joining up with Fabio Capello's squad and had to be taken off at Wembley during the friendly win over Slovakia on Saturday.

Hammers boss Gianfranco Zola said: "He will not need an operation but there is a problem between the muscle and the tendon in his groin. He will be out for six weeks."
