Roy Hodgson expects to see John Terry's warrior instinct come to the fore during England's Euro 2012 campaign.

Terry's presence within the squad has been the subject of intense debate and there are some who feel the 31-year-old should not have been picked once his court hearing into allegations he racially abused Anton Ferdinand, which Terry strenuously denies, was put back until July.

But Hodgson is certain that his faith in the Chelsea captain will be rewarded, and he said: "We all know John's qualities, we all know what a good centre-half he is and what a warrior he is."
