Ashley Cole has been handed his 99th England cap for Tuesday night's World Cup qualifier against Poland in Warsaw.

As expected, manager Roy Hodgson made sweeping changes to his starting line-up, with six of the side that beat San Marino last Friday losing their places, including two-goal Danny Welbeck.

Cole's return was significant because it was the first time he had been chosen since the Twitter storm erupted 11 days ago that led to the Chelsea man being charged with misconduct and forced him to apologise to Football Association chairman David Bernstein.
