Chelsea manager Avram Grant has hit back at Emmanuel Petit after he suggested John Terry and Ashley Cole let England down by missing their country´s final Euro 2008 qualifier.

The duo sat out the Croatia game, which saw England fail to qualify for the finals after a 3-2 defeat, but were back for their club the following weekend, but Grant insisted former Blues midfielder Petit - who in October 2001 refused to fly out to Israel for a UEFA Cup match because he thought it was too dangerous - had made the wrong call in his new role as television pundit.

He said: "I know that my players did everything to play in the England national team. We can judge Emmanuel Petit how he behaved as a player and John Terry behaved as the captain of the national team."
