John Terry says that he has no plans to come out of international retirement and play for England at the World Cup in Brazil.


Chelsea's captain stopped playing for England in September 2012, in the wake of Euro 2012, has not appeared for Roy Hodgson’s side since then and insists his international career is over and his team-mate Cahill is one of the key English players.


"My days are gone and it is down to Gary and the young boys to push on for our country," Terry told Sky Sports.

John Terry is impressed by Cahill and his improvement.


"He seems to get better every day. He is great in the air and reads it well, he is quick and he is the man for England going forward and has been excellent for Chelsea.''


In Gary Cahill he sees not only a great player, but a good friend as well.


"We have struck up a great relationship, since he came from Bolton not only on the pitch but off it too. We do love playing together and he made his debut for England with me. A lot went on with myself and England. I love playing for my country, and I was very proud to do that and captain my country twice. Unfortunately things have changed and moved on, and I am concentrating on playing well and hopefully keeping us top of the league."


Terry was stripped of the England captaincy, for the second time in his career, by the FA in 2012, after the Football Association decided he could no longer hold the position while awaiting trial for racially abusing an opponent, Anton Ferdinand, during Chelsea's clash with QPR at Loftus Road in October 2011.


He was cleared in court of committing any criminal offence, but he felt the FA's decision to charge him meant his position with England was "untenable".

 

It has been suggested that Terry could be in line for a recall ahead of the World Cup in Brazil this summer, with England lacking depth in central defence, but Hodgson will need to find some other solution!
