Ashley Cole set for scan

Ashley Cole will have a scan on Monday to determine his fitness ahead of England's final two World Cup qualifiers.

Ashley Cole will become the latest member of England's centurions
Cole has made 105 senior appearances for England.

The Chelsea left-back was substituted after 75 minutes of his team's 3-1 win at Norwich on Sunday, manager Jose Mourinho replacing him with Eden Hazard for tactical reasons as the Blues pushed for the three points.

However, Cole, 32, later complained of a problem with his ribs and is scheduled to have a scan ahead of England's crucial Group H matches against Montenegro on Friday and Poland four days later.

 "I hope he is fine. I want England to do [well]," Mourinho said after the match.

"I didn't know [that Cole was injured]. We were in a difficult position before. He had something in his ribs that we need to assess, but hopefully it's fine. He goes for a scan now, when we arrive [back in London]."
