Terry could still play a part at the 2014 World Cup.
Ahead of the 2014 World Cup in Brazil many are calling for England manager Roy Hodgson to recall Chelsea captain John Terry to the squad.
Terry retired from international football in 2012 after being found guilty by the FA of racially abusing QPR defender Anton Ferdinand in a Premier League match.
Although the centre-back was acquitted in court, the chief football organisation in England decided that the 33-year-old had indeed been racist towards Ferdinand and served the defender a four-match ban and a £220,000 fine.
Terry retired from playing for the Three Lions – a side the Englishman had also been skipper of – with 78 caps for the country.
Hodgson had previously said that the team were looking to move forward and therefore recalling the Blues star was not an option, but the player”s form this season has forced the 66-year-old to reconsider, reports the Telegraph.
Since Jose Mourinho returned as boss at Stamford Bridge Terry has been a stalwart in the side once again and has made 31 appearances in all competitions and has helped the west London team to 15 clean-sheets in that time.
More to the point the veteran’s usual partner in central defence is national compatriot Gary Cahill, meaning the pair would be a ready made fit to start at the back for England.
This prospect could well be tempting to Hodgson as Mourinho’s men have been among the strongest at the back in the league, but recalling Terry may undermine the boss’ authority.
There is no doubting that the defender has the talent to compete on the international stage, it’s just whether his personality and ethics is something the team want in the changing room.
