Hodgson yet to contact Terry
Former England skipper waiting in suspense to learn about Euro 2012
John Terry is still waiting to discover if he will be in the plans of new England manager Roy Hodgson for the 2012 European Championship.
Much has been made of the Chelsea captain and former Three Lions skipper’s possible inclusion after off-field controversy and concerns over his form.
Terry is facing a court trial in July, after Euro 2012, for allegedly racially abusing Anton Ferdinand during a Premier League game against Queens Park Rangers last October.
It has as a result been questioned whether the centre-back will be able to be a member of the same England squad as Ferdinand’s brother, Rio, and it is an issue for Hodgson to address.
The current West Brom head coach said at a media conference at the beginning of May to mark his unveiling he wanted to hold talks with Rio Ferdinand and Terry before making any decision.
But Hodgson, who is only due to begin his work with England on a full-time basis after Sunday’s conclusion to the league season, has not yet been in contact with Terry.
Terry: “Hopefully, I get the call and I’m in the squad – and that goes for many of us here. I’ll always be there for my country.”
