Chelsea defender John Terry is going head-to-head with the FA after taking the "heart-breaking" decision to end his England football career.

The former national captain is facing an improper conduct charge, the final instalment of his spat with Anton Ferdinand at Loftus Road last October.

If he was found guilty, most thought he could never play for England again. However, in a shock move on Sunday night, Terry took the matter out of FA hands by ending one of the most controversial England careers of all time on 78 caps.
