While playing for the New Zealand Knights, the then teenage defender got his first taste of the All Whites environment when called up to the All Whites squad for a two match series against Malaysia, although the now 22 year old is still yet to win his first senior cap. However with a versatility that allows Cole to play in central defence, as a full back or even in midfield, and with international experience at U-17, U-20 and now U-23 level, chances are he'll complete the set.
