Terry ruled out

Published Add your comment

England coach Fabio Capello has confirmed that John Terry has been ruled out of Saturday's World Cup qualifier against Kazakhstan.

The England captain had been a doubt for the game with a back complaint which had prevented him from training.

Rio Ferdinand will take the captain's armband at Wembley in Terry's absence.

Capello told Sky Sports News: "It is a problem in the back for John Terry.

"(But) we have plenty of players, we have the substitutes, I am sure the substitute of John Terry will play well."

When asked if the Chelsea skipper would be fit for the Belarus match on Wednesday, the Italian continued: "I don't know, it depends on his back, if he can train a bit the day after tomorrow."
