John Terry will be selected for England's World Cup qualifying double-header against Moldova and Ukraine, manager Roy Hodgson has confirmed.

The Football Association have yet to announce a date for Terry's independent disciplinary hearing over charges he used a racist slur against Anton Ferdinand, an allegation he denies and was cleared of by a Magistrates' court last month.

Terry was rested, along with several other senior players, for last week's friendly win over Italy. But Hodgson revealed he would recall the Chelsea captain - if fit - when he names his squad for the September 7 away game in Moldova on Thursday and home clash against Ukraine four days later.
