Terry still to hear from Hodgson
Published in The Saudi Gazette on 12 - 05 - 2012

Chelsea captain John Terry said Thursday he is still to hear from new England manager Roy Hodgson regarding his possible participation at Euro 2012.
Hodgson is set to end the guessing game over whether Terry and Manchester United's Rio Ferdinand, long regarded as England's premier central defensive pairing, will play together at the European Championships in June when he names his squad for the tournament in Poland and Ukraine next week.
Terry faces a court case in July over allegations he racially abused Ferdinand's younger brother Anton during a Premier League match against Queens Park Rangers in October. Terry denies the charges.
Speaking at his appointment last week, Hodgson said he planned to hold face-to-face talks with Terry and Ferdinand to gauge whether the two could still feature in the same squad. “I've not had any call yet but I'm focusing on the league and Chelsea at the moment,” Terry said at Chelsea's Player of the Year awards Thursday.
“Hopefully, I get the call and I'm in the squad – and that goes for many of us here.
“I'll always be there for my country.”
Hodgson was only thrust into the England position a few weeks before Euro 2012 after Italian manager Fabio Capello resigned from the job in protest at the Football Association's decision to strip Terry of the England captaincy.
The FA, while insisting they were not pre-judging the outcome of any court action, said they did not want Terry, who as England captain would have more media duties than an ordinary squad player, being constantly questioned about the case during Euro 2012.
Hodgson is due to name his 23-man squad Wednesday.
