Skipper John Terry thanked the England fans for their support after returning to lead the side to a single goal victory over Sweden at Wembley.

Terry was appearing for his country for the first time since being the subject of a police investigation regarding alleged racist remarks towards QPR defender Anton Ferdinand. Terry strenuously denies the claims.

Terry said: "I'm not pleased to get it out of the way. I'm pleased that we've got the two wins from the two games. I was not worried about the crowd reaction. Not at all. I warmed up during the Spain game and got a really good reception from the fans. It was the same tonight. They were great with me so I can't ask for anymore than that."
