The Chelsea winger Joe Cole scored the brilliant opening goal for the Blues in their 2-1 win over Man Utd yeaterday, and insists he is not worried about getting back into the England team for the World Cup until he has helped Chelsea to win the Premiership title.
“You cannot talk your way into the England squad,” said Cole.
“If I am playing regularly in a team fighting to be champions I will have every chance.
“But my main focus now is Chelsea. It is very important this club gets back to the summit of English football.
“I want to be part of the team that becomes champions again.”
He was then asked if he thought hois performance had earned him a regular starting place at Chelsea, and he replied: “It is not down to me to pick the team,”
“But I enjoy playing on that right side.
“We changed the system in January and things went really well. We also changed the system in the last three games and the same thing has happened.
“I never lost belief in myself and there is no doubting what I can do. I just needed a run of games.”
Joey, you carry on playing like that and you won’t just go to South Africa, you will be the star of the team!
