Vauxhall, the England football team sponsor, has released a celebratory video to commemorate Ashley Cole’s 100th cap for his country.
The video, which is available on YouTube and titled “Glorious”, provides a look back at Ashley Cole singing the national anthem during a number of his 100 appearances for England.
Cole, who won his 100th cap in the match against Brazil at Wembley on the 6 February, joins an illustrious list of players with 100 caps including Peter Shilton (125), David Beckham (115), Bobby Moore (108), Bobby Charlton (106), Billy Wright (105) and current captain Steven Gerrard (100).
The England left back, who also took part in a question and answer session with fans through Vauxhall’s dedicated England football twitter account (@VauxhallEngland), commented: “I am very proud to have received 100 caps for England and grateful to Vauxhall for commemorating it with this video.
“The national anthem always makes the hair on the back of your neck stand up before the game and I feel honoured to have played for my country.”
Peter Hope, Marketing Director at Vauxhall, said, “As proud sponsors of Home Nations football, we are delighted to celebrate Ashley Cole’s achievement with this video and congratulate him on his career for England.”
The video can be viewed on YouTube and is being seeded to fans and followers of Vauxhall England across multiple platforms including the Vauxhall Football website and the FA England Facebook page, which has over 1.6m followers.
