Chelsea's stalwart defender and captain has been an integral part of the Blues' defensive unit for over a decade now. And despite a few headed goals over the course of his career, he has never hit the headlines at the attacking end of the pitch.

However he almost scored a spectacular goal from behind the halfway line during Stilyan Petrov's charity match at Celtic Park in front of 60,000 stunned fans.

Picking the ball up deep inside his own half, the former England international spotted the Celtic XI side's goalkeeper off his line and proceeded to try an audacious lob over the stranded 'keeper.

However at the last minute, the strike drifted right and struck the base of the post, leaving Terry to rue what would have been the goal of his career.

The match, played in aid of Petrov's battle with leukaemia, also saw a hilarious incident when Aston Villa striker Gabby Agbonlahor floored One Direction star Louis Tomlinson with a shoulder barge which left the young pop sensation shaken and physically sick.
