Ashley Cole, to many people, is what Ron Burgundy is to Wes Mantooth in Anchorman. They plain, straight hate him, but dammit, do they respect him.

And England's most capped full-back could become the national side's sixth centurion if he plays against San Marino on Friday and Poland next Tuesday. He would be following in the footsteps of Billy Wright, Sir Bobby Charlton, Bobby Moore, Peter Shilton and David Beckham should he reach a ton.

Fortunately for Cole, the likelihood is he won't reach three-figures at Wembley. He has been booed at the national stadium before by supporters and he probably will be booed again after his behaviour over the past week.

Despite who he is, what he is done and what he stands for, he has been a world-class fullback for club and country over the past decade. But how much do you know about Cole's England career?
