Joe Cole was part of an elite group of England players who had played in a Champions League final during his time with the Three Lions.
How quickly things have changed. The number of England players who have appeared in the final of Europe’s best club competition has surpassed double digits, indicating that this is one of the most exciting England national teams in history.
This is why Cole believes that English clubs have a better chance of winning the Champions League, which begins this week, than those from any other country.
Cole knows what it takes to play in the Champions League’s latter stages, since he was a member of the Chelsea team that reached the final four for three years in a row between 2007 and 2009, and even began the 2008 final loss to Manchester United.
