It was claimed that Bertrand had withdrawn from the England squad to face San Marino, but the illness turned out to be a viral infection which has also ruled him out of Tuesday's trip to Poland.
In the immediate aftermath of his first withdrawal becoming known, Bertrand said: "Just to clarify.... Its not a "sore throat" Im ill. swollen glands in my neck... And constant headache for 3 days now and freezin cold.
"Do you think a "sorethroat" could stop me being apart of a match for my club or country? #yourf******nuts this is what every boy dreams of."
Although Bertrand was far more vague than Cole, who has accepted a misconduct charge after making a direct attack on the FA, he quickly realised his error.
"sorry if i offended anyone by swearing as i don't encourage that type of language," he said, "was just disappointed at the thought of people thinking i only have a sore throat.. which is not the case..."
However, Bertrand also decided his presence on the popular social networking site was a hassle he could do without and he has told friends he will never use it again.
