Ashley Cole is set to become the latest member of England's 100-club next week - but there is likely to be more interest in Roy Hodgson's midfield department when he names his squad to face Brazil..

Cole will be the seventh player to reach the landmark providing he faces the Samba stars at Wembley next Wednesday, following on from Peter Shilton, David Beckham, Bobby Moore, Bobby Charlton, Billy Wright and Steven Gerrard, who reached the milestone in Sweden last November.

Notoriously reluctant to speak with the media, there is unlikely to be any great fanfare for the 32-year-old, beyond a possible picture, and Cole has long since accepted any admiration for his undoubted talents will be tempered by the distaste for some of his general behaviour.
