The former England international now plays for Tampa Bay Rowdies
Joe Cole is finally making his mark in America.
The former England international left Coventry City at the end of last season and moved to Florida to play with NASL-side Tampa Bay Rowdies.
He scored his second goal in four games, but first at home, as his side defeated Puerto Rico FC 3-0. Cole scored the game's opening goal, with a stunning bicycle from inside the box.

The goal was so popular, it even featured in the SportsCenter Daily Top 10 plays of the day.
Although not the top tier of football in America, it's nice to see Cole enjoying the final years of his career, without taking the bigger pay packets available in MLS. The Florida sunshine beats Coventry's weather any day.
