Ashley is one of the world’s top left-backs. A Londoner, he began with Arsenal and made 14 Division One appearances on loan at Crystal Palace before achieving a regular slot in the Gunners’ defence in 2000-01.

After just four appearances for the Under-21s, Ashley was fast-tracked into the England senior team and Sven-Goran Eriksson handed him his debut in a FIFA World Cup Qualifier against Albania in Tirana on 28 March 2001.

Alongside Kenny Sansom, Cole is now England’s most-capped full-back in history, an achievement which helped him pick up the England Player of the Year award for 2010, as voted for by fans.
