Published Add your comment

John Terry declared Chelsea's historic Champions League comeback against Napoli proved English football is "still going strong".

The Blues salvaged both their European season and some pride for the Barclays Premier League with a stunning performance to reach the quarter-finals of the game's elite club competition. England was in danger of having no team in the last eight of the Champions League for the first time since 1996.

But Chelsea became only the fourth club to overturn a first-leg deficit of two goals or more by winning 4-1 after extra time to seal a 5-4 aggregate win. Asked about the state of English football, which many had bemoaned following the exits of Manchester United, Manchester City and Arsenal, Terry said: "It's still going strong."
