Chelsea captain Terry a doubt for England meeting with Ukraine

England could be without Chelsea captain John Terry for their World Cup qualifier against Ukraine on Tuesday after the centre-back twisted his ankle in the win over Moldova, the BBC has reported.



Terry suffered the injury late in the 5-0 victory but played on regardless, but is now considered doubtful to be fit to play the Euro 2012 co-hosts at Wembley. England had used their three substitutes yet manager Roy Hodgson offered to withdraw Terry with the score line already comfortable, but Terry chose to remain on the field for the final 20 minutes of the match.


Hodgson later revealed that Terry suffered a double blow to his ankle, first being kicked by an opposition player and later twisting the same ankle, but Hodgson added Terry still did not want to leave his side a man light.


He said: “I'd like to have taken him off, and we did suggest we'd play with 10," said Hodgson. He's a warrior though, so he poo-pooed the suggestion he should come off with 20 minutes to go. It's obviously not a very serious injury, but every knock is important with only three days between games.


A Frank Lampard brace and goals from Jermain Defoe, James Milner and Leighton Baines gave England three points, putting them top of Group H after the other match played on Friday, between Montenegro and Poland, ended in a 2-2 draw.
