Ashley Cole (born December 20, 1980 in Stepney, London) is an association football player. He is a defender, who nearly always plays at left-back. He currently plays for Arsenal and the English national team.

Cole is known for his substantial pace, which is often used to great effect in supporting and overlapping the left-winger in front of him. Critics have said his attacking talents conceal defensive weaknesses, though Cole's rapid ascension into the Arsenal and England teams at a young age demonstrates that the teams' respective managers have confidence in his abilities.

Club career

Cole has been at Arsenal since he was a teenager, and signed as a professional on February 25, 2000. He made his debut for the first team on November 30, 1999 against Middlesbrough at the age of 18, although this was his only appearance of that season. Before fully breaking into the Arsenal side, he spent three months on loan at Crystal Palace in 2000. After an injury to Silvinho, Arsenal's established Brazilian left-back, in autumn 2000, Cole came in as his replacement, and remained first-choice even after Silvinho's recovery.

With Arsenal, he has won the Premiership twice (in 2002 and 2004), and the FA Cup twice (in 2002 and 2003).

International career

Cole made his England debut against Albania, on March 28, 2001. As of January 2005, he has played for England 38 times, though he has never scored for the national side. He was also named as one of four England players in the Euro 2004 all-star squad.
