Gary Cahill believes John Terry's England return was was a "relief" rather than a burden for the skipper amid the police probe into allegations he racially abused Anton Ferdinand.

Tuesday night's 1-0 friendly win over Sweden saw Terry make his first international appearance since footage emerged which some claim shows the Chelsea skipper using a racist slur against QPR defender Ferdinand.

Bolton defender Cahill, who partnered Terry in the centre of defence against the Swedes, hailed the 30-year-old's focus, saying: "Sometimes it's a relief playing football, isn't it? Whatever's going on away from the field, on a football pitch he was first class. He's a very easy footballer to play alongside."
