There have been calls for John Terry to stand aside as England skipper until the conclusion of his court case later this year.

Terry denies racially abusing Anton Ferdinand at Loftus Road in October. As Fabio Capello has stated his intention to keep selecting his captain until the conclusion of the case, confirmation that Terry's five-day hearing will not take place until July 9 seems certain to confirm the Chelsea captain's place at the Euro 2012 finals in Poland and Ukraine.

Damian Collins MP, a member of the House of Commons Culture, Media and Sport Select Committee, voiced his opinion on Twitter on Wednesday: "John Terry should stand aside as captain until the case is resolved, and any doubt either way removed."
