Terry Misses Out

FOOTBALL : England captain John Terry was absent from the final training session ahead of Saturday’s prestigious friendly with Brazil in Doha.

England captain John Terry was absent from the final training session ahead of Saturday’s prestigious friendly with Brazil in Doha.
The Chelsea defender is already considered a doubt for the game with the Brazilians because of an ankle injury.
The remaining 20 fit players were put through their places by coach Fabio Capello and his coaching staff.
The first on to the pitch was Manchester United striker Wayne Rooney, who will skipper the side should Terry fail to win his fitness battle.
Chelsea midfielder Frank Lampard has already returned home with a thigh problem and it is very much a shadow squad which will take on Dunga’s side in Qatar.
The likes of David James, Glen Johnson, Rio Ferdinand, Ashley Cole, Steven Gerrard, David Beckham and Emile Heskey are all unavailable through injury.
England have only beaten Brazil on three occasions and will be looking to register their first victory against the former world champions since 1990.
Training in the early evening was a merciful relief for the squad after the soaring temperatures which had greeted them during their first session in mid-morning on Thursday.
