start of a conspiracy

I don't know if you saw West Sham V Spurs today. The Irons went one-nil up thanks to a very good goal from Carlton Cole. Seems that he immediately regretted it as he put the ball (the wrong way) through to Jermain Defoe who scored Spurs' equalizer. Everyone makes mistakes you might say but look at this:

Carlton Cole is keen to be given the opportunity to forge a successful strike partnership with Jermain Defoe for England. The West Ham striker produced an outstanding 45-minute display when he stepped off the bench in the recent friendly against Holland as the Three Lions hit back from 2-0 down to draw 2-2. Defoe bagged both goals for England, but it was Cole's excellent all-round contribution and his link-up play with the Spurs striker which caught the eye.

It was truly defense splitting pass, the like of which we rarely manage. Maybe Cole thinks he won't get back in the England squad unless he shows how well he can play with Defoe. A watching Fabio Capello must have been impressed. I think.
