Hodgson ready to pick Terry

Published Add your comment

Roy Hodgson has confirmed he would pick John Terry for England's World Cup qualifying double-header against Moldova and Ukraine, despite the defender's international future remaining in limbo.

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 court last month. Chelsea captain Terry was rested, along with several other senior players, for last week's friendly win over Italy.

But Hodgson revealed he would recall the defender - if fit - when he names his squad for the September 7 away game in Moldova on Thursday and the home clash against Ukraine four days later. He said: "As far as I know, I can select him at the moment, and I will be selecting him."
