The Chelsea left-back has decided to bring his England career to an end following Roy Hodgson´s decision to leave him out of the squad for Brazil.

Cole said: "I got the call from Roy and agree the England team should be about the young players. I think it best I retire from the England team now."

Cole´s successor, Everton defender Leighton Baines, and 18-year-old Southampton left-back Luke Shaw are expected to be included in the squad which is announced on Monday at 14:00 BST.
