England's much criticised left back, Ashley Cole, was roundly lambasted by observers last night as he was spotted laughing and joking shortly after England's World Cup humiliation at the hands of the Germans.
It seems that Ashley Cole is planning a Las Vegas blow-out with some of his footy mates, so that he can forget all about the World Cup disaster, and the wreckage of his marriage to Girls Aloud warbler, Cheryl - last seen hanging on the arm of Dancing Derek Hough.
What disturbs most observers about this whole sorry state of affairs is that Ashley Cole just doesn't seem bothered.
In spite of England's woeful World Cup showing, and the fact that a bunch of crooked hotel employees had been tampering with his underpants, the only thing that Ashley Cole seemed bothered about was getting the hell out of South Africa, and jetting off to Vegas.
It's a horrendous thought that while thousands of England fans were crying into their beer on Sunday evening and setting their George Cross flags on fire in disgust...
Ashley Cole was having a laugh.
Well, it is a funny old game.
More as we get it.
