Cole puts England future in doubt
Ashley Cole's England career looks in doubt after his response on Twitter to criticism of his role in the John Terry racism case.
The independent Football Association regulatory commission said there were discrepancies in Cole's initial statement to FA interviewers of what he heard Anton Ferdinand say to Terry compared to a later statement. Cole responded on his official Twitter account this afternoon: "Hahahahaa, well done FA, I lied did I, #BUNCHOFT**TS". The Chelsea and England full-back's evidence proved crucial to Terry in his acquittal at Westminster Magistrates Court in July, but the FA commission last week banned Terry for four matches for racially abusing Ferdinand.
