Ashley Cole beats Steven Gerrard to Player-of-the-Year Award

Yes, this game of football is all about achievements. It’s all about fond memories and medals.

Fans across the country have voted Ashley Cole as England Player of the Year 2010 following a recent poll on the FA website.

It’s the eighth year the online poll has run. It asks fans to choose who they feel performed best for England over the past 12 months.

In total Fabio Capello used 44 players during 2010. They played 12 matches, winning seven and scoring 21 goals in the process.

Cole missed just three fixtures, all of which were friendlies, against Egypt, Mexico and France.

The left-back now joins Frank Lampard on the England honours list; our vice-captain previously won back-to-back accolades in 2004 and 2005.

This year, Steven Gerrard came in second, while Manchester City winger Adam Johnson was third in the voting.

The award to Ashley Cole shows that Chelsea has the quality to stay on top despite all odds.
