Steve McClaren´s plans for next month´s Euro 2008 double-header have suffered a major blow after skipper John Terry fractured his cheekbone in Chelsea´s goalless draw with Fulham on Saturday.

Terry will have a face mask fitted and although Chelsea are talking optimistically of him being back in training next week, it would be a major surprise if he was.

The usual recovery period is six weeks, which, if that were to be the case in this instance, would not only rule Terry out of the Wembley clash with Estonia on October 13 and the potentially pivotal trip to Moscow to face Russia four days later but also the final Group E game against Croatia.
