Chelsea defender John Terry feels that he still has what it takes at the top level, and it is understood he has not yet closed the door on his international career.
Despite struggling with injury this season, the Blues captain is believed to be prepared to make himself available for England again, despite being stripped of the captaincy after being charged with racially abusing Anton Ferdinand.
However, his failure to shake David Bernstein’s hand at the Champions League trophy handover last week will not have endeared himself to those within the FA, and he may already have burned too many bridges within the association.

In the wake of the 2-1 Europa League semi-final win at Basle, Terry was asked if he was still as good a player as ever: “Yes, I personally think that,” he said.
“This year’s been really frustrating for me, not playing and picking up the (knee) injury (against Liverpool in November).
“Initially it looked (like an absence of) two or three weeks, it turned out to be three or four months.
“I don’t want to talk out of turn, but I’d love to stay at Chelsea. I’m happy to leave things until they come to me.
“I’ve got another year left and I’ll definitely be here next year.”
