Hodgson rejected England return for Chelsea's Terry

FA chairman Greg Dyke offered to bring Chelsea captain John Terry back into the England fold, only for manager Roy Hodgson to reject the proposal, the Daily Mail has reported.

John Terry

Dyke allegedly told Hodgson that if he wanted to take Terry to the World Cup, he could pave the way for the former skipper to return to the fold. Terry stepped away from international football in the aftermath of the incident with Anton Ferdinand, when Terry was cleared in court of racially abusing the then-Queens Park Rangers defender but charged by the FA.

Terry’s club colleague Gary Cahill is a regular in Hodgson’s England side but the chance to pair the duo at international level was turned down by Hodgson. Everton captain Phil Jagielka is usually Cahill’s England partner.

Chelsea have conceded only 26 league goals this season, the lowest total of the Premier League, with Terry and Cahill regular fixtures in the Blues’ backline.

Terry won 78 caps for England, making his debut in June 2003. He was appointed captain first by Steve McClaren in 2006 but stripped of the armband in 2010 by Fabio Capello. Capello then re-appointed Terry as captain, but the FA took the captaincy from Terry after the Ferdinand incident, Capello resigning as a result.

What a funny story. England should also take David Beckam to the world cup. Terry and Lampard caused us the Premiereship title this season. Cos each time they play for us (blues) its minus two and we'll be left with active nine men playing. Though, after every match, the biase, double standard and funny English press will rate Terry as our best, even when its obvious that he is finished.

I think Hodgson should forget about the past and consider the interest of England because we all know what the mighty Terry is capable of.
