Robson wants Cole omitted

Sir Bobby Robson is urging new England manager Fabio Capello to drop Ashley Cole for Wednesday´s friendly against France as punishment for his "unacceptable" behaviour on the pitch for Chelsea against Tottenham.

Cole´s tackle on Spurs defender Alan Hutton in the 4-4 draw at White Hart Lane last Wednesday resulted in a yellow card and, more controversially, an apparent disregard by the England defender for what referee Mike Riley was telling him.

Robson told the Mail on Sunday: "I would be happy to see an England team line up against France without Ashley Cole. It would hammer home the message that what he did was unacceptable."
