Chelsea teammate to join Cole on 100?

Chelsea teammate to join Cole on 100?

England will see another player reach the landmark 100 caps for their country next week when Ashley Cole, fitness permitting, win his 100th cap against Brazil at Wembley.

There are not too many that achieve such a feat, although Steven Gerrard recently did this and the pair 'could' soon be joined by another stalwart of recent years...

It was thought that Frank Lampard's England career would be drawing to an end after the Euros last summer but the midfielder has remained, pretty much, part of the mix and the indication from Roy Hodgson is that this will remain the case for the foreseeable...

Hodgson has said 'there is no reason' the Chelsea man should not join his Chelsea teammate Cole in winning the remaining caps required to hit the magical 100-cap mark.
