Terry to miss Ukraine game
September 09, 2012 15:52:48 UK
John Terry will not be in Roy Hodgson's side for Tuesday's match against Ukraine due to an ankle knock.
John Terry has been ruled out of England's World Cup qualifying clash against Ukraine at Wembley on Tuesday night.
The Chelsea centre-half limped out of England's five-goal demolition of Moldova with an ankle injury, and the FA have now released a statement confirming he will be unavailable for the Ukraine clash.
An FA spokesperson said: "Following further treatment from the England medical staff on Sunday, John Terry will not be available for the World Cup qualifier against Ukraine on Tuesday.
"Terry suffered an ankle injury in the game with Moldova, and has returned to his club."
It leaves manager Roy Hodgson without his first choice centre-half for his second World Cup 2014 qualifier.
England came through the Moldova match on Friday with a clean sheet in their 5-0 thrashing of the eastern European country.
However, Tuesday's match at home to Ukraine will be a much tougher test and Terry - who has 77 international caps - would have been one of Hodgson's first picks on his team sheet.
The Three Lions are 1.57 to beat Ukraine, while the visitors can be backed at 6.00 to pick up three points.
