John Terry faces a D-Day over his England captaincy with Football Association leaders expected to decide as early as Friday whether he should give up the armband due to his racism trial.

FA chairman David Bernstein on Thursday contacted all the other members of the 12-strong board to seek their views on Terry's captaincy after Wednesday's announcement that the Chelsea defender's court case, where he is accused of racially abusing QPR's Anton Ferdinand will not take place until July 9 - after Euro 2012.

More than one board member have argued strongly that Terry should not be the England figurehead with such a serious charge hanging over him, and that the FA should act immediately rather than putting off a decision until the next board meeting on February 23.
