Photo of the Day: Ashley Cole's poppy boots

You may have heard about this little disagreement between FIFA and the English FA over the use of poppies for England's friendly against Spain on Saturday. A compromise was finally reached, but that didn't stop Nike from taking things into its own power-tripping hands.

Nine England internationals will wear Nike boots embroidered with a poppy for the match. Among those participating is our very own Ashley Cole, his Tiempo Legends pictured below in action during Wednesday's training session.

Fitting tribute or misguided mockery?
