Bacary Sagna believes Arsenal team-mate Kieran Gibbs will one day replace Ashley Cole and become England's future left-back.

Gibbs came up against Sagna in his first start for his country in the 2-1 defeat against France on Wednesday night at Wembley.Sagna was suitably impressed and reckons the 20-year-old has the talent to be a England regular and take over from Chelsea's Cole.'I think he did well,' Sagna told Sky Sports News. 'It was difficult on the left side and he caused us some problems.

'He was subbed because he will probably play at the weekend and I am quite proud to see him play.  I think he will be their [England] next left back .'
