Cole In Line to Make 100th England Appearance in Brazil Match

Jan. 31 (Bloomberg) -- Ashley Cole may make his 100th appearance for the England soccer team after being included in the squad for next week’s exhibition match against Brazil.

Cole was among the 24-man squad named today by manager Roy Hodgson for the Feb. 6 game at Wembley Stadium in London. The Chelsea defender would be the seventh England player to reach the milestone, after captain Steven Gerrard played his 100th game in Sweden in November.

Manchester United defender Chris Smalling has been recalled to the squad for the first time in a year. Manchester City’s Joe Hart and Birmingham’s Jack Butland are the only goalkeepers, with Norwich’s John Ruddy and Celtic’s Fraser Forster both injured.

ENGLAND SQUAD: GOAKLKEEPERS: Jack Butland, Joe Hart. DEFENDERS: Leighton Baines, Gary Cahill, Ashley Cole, Phil Jagielka, Glen Johnson, Joleon Lescott, Chris Smalling, Kyle Walker. MIDFIELDERS: Michael Carrick, Tom Cleverley, Steven Gerrard, Frank Lampard, Aaron Lennon, James Milner, Leon Osman, Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain, Jack Wilshere. FORWARDS: Jermain Defoe, Wayne Rooney, Daniel Sturridge, Theo Walcott, Danny Welbeeck.
