Roy Hodgson tells Chelsea’s Ashley Cole that he won’t make England’s World Cup squad [Telegraph]

Chelsea’s Ashley Cole has featured heavily recently but has struggled for playing time under Jose Mourinho this season.

The 33 year old England servant does not know where his future lies, but according to the Telegraph, it definitely doesn’t lie in Brazil.

The Telegraph claim England manager Roy Hodgson told Chelsea’s Ashley Cole that he won’t make the World Cup squad on Sunday evening.

He is now likely to retire from International football after declining to be put on the standby list.

Competing with Leighton Baines and Luke Shaw for two spots, one star player was always going to miss out but is it a mistake to lose the vital tournament experience that Cole has?

Luke Shaw is reportedly the subject of a £27m bis from Man United.
