Terry to make himself available for England duty

Updated: February 7, 2012

John Terry will reportedly make himself available for England duty despite losing his captaincy last week.

The FA removed Terry as captain last Friday after the defender’s trial for alleged racial abuse against Anton Ferdinand was adjourned until after Euro 2012.

It is the second time Terry has lost the captain’s armband since he succeeded David Beckham in 2006.

Capello took the captaincy off Terry in February 2010 after allegations surrounding the defender’s personal life, but the Italian reinstated the Chelsea man in March 2011.

England manager Fabio Capello has been outspoken in support of Terry since the FA’s announcement.

Reports suggested Terry might retire from international football, but the 31 year old will reportedly wait until the squad for England’s friendly with Holland is announced to make a decision on his international future.
