Stuart Pearce has refused to reveal whether John Terry will be part of England's Euro 2012 squad if he is appointed manager for the tournament.

Terry was stripped of the England captaincy earlier this month when the trial to determine whether he racially abused QPR's Anton Ferdinand was scheduled after Euro 2012. Pearce was appointed caretaker manager a fortnight ago after Fabio Capello quit over the matter and on Thursday declared himself ready to remain in charge until after this summer's tournament.

But he would not be drawn on what that might mean for Terry's hopes of being picked, saying only: "We'd probably chat nearer the summer."
