Football News

England's plans for Tuesday's Euro 2012 qualifier against Montenegro have taken another shuddering blow with the news that John Terry has been forced to pull out with a back injury.

Terry is the third player to withdraw from Fabio Capello's squad in as many days following the previous departures of Phil Jagielka and Aaron Lennon.

He is also the most significant given the Chelsea skipper was virtually certain to face the Eastern Europeans, who have won all three matches so far and head to Wembley at the top of Group G.

The Football Association confirmed the news in a short statement on Sunday evening.

"John Terry has returned to Chelsea on Sunday evening with a back injury," read the statement.

"Terry was assessed by England medical staff on Sunday and will not be fit to play any part in Tuesday's game against Montenegro.

"No further call-ups will be made at this time."
