Chelsea skipper 'JT' in FA and World Cup fitness race

Published Add your comment

Chelsea captain John Terry is undergoing a "precautionary scan" on his right foot after taking a knock in training on Wednesday.

The news comes as a blow for Chelsea's preparations as they attempt to win the double when they face Portsmouth in Saturday's FA Cup final and if it proves to be a more serious problem, his participation in the World Cup could be in doubt.

A statement from the club said: "John Terry has taken a knock in training and has gone to hospital for a precautionary scan on his right foot. He left Cobham walking freely in a protective boot, and we await the results which are expected on Thursday."

It also gives England coach Fabio Capello a headache as he prepares for the World Cup in South Africa and the Italian will undoubtedly be monitoring the situation carefully.
