Cole keen to learn from Drogba

05 June 2009 02:36
Carlton Cole has been picking Didier Drogba's brains in a bid to become an England regular. The West Ham striker, 25, is part of Fabio Capello's squad for England's World Cup qualifier against Kazakhstan after a successful season at Upton Park. But with the likes of Emile Heskey and Peter Crouch also competing for that target-man position, Cole is determined to keep improving. And that quest has taken him to see Drogba, his former Chelsea team-mate, and Aston Villa's Norway international John Carew. "I talk to Didier a lot and he feels that I can progress even further than I have and I am happy that he thinks of me highly," said Cole, who scored 12 goals for the Hammers last term. "I talk to John Carew as he scores goals wherever he goes. Hopefully I can do that one day."
