Quite a few of the former England players want John Terry to make a comeback to the international arena after the impressive shows put up by him in the Barclays Premier League recently, but, the veteran defender has made it clear that he is not thinking about doing that.
Terry had played a big role for the Blues in their last league match against Manchester City. He was very solid playing at his usual position of centre-back during that game.
Terry had lost his way at Chelsea a little bit in the latter half of the 2012-13 Season, but, with the new manager coming in this season, he has found himself back in favour again and is producing the goods for the club.
As far as Terry’s international career is concerned, it had got over in 2012 and the main reason behind it was the player’s declining relationship with the Football Association.
Last year, when the England boss Roy Hodgson was asked about Terry, he had said, “It’s been more than a year now since John announced his retirement. We haven’t got his services in any of our qualifying matches, in spite of that, we have done well overall.”
“It’s important to continue going forward rather than looking back after having a bad game.”
These statements were made by Hodgson in November. At that point of time, Terry’s form wasn’t as good as it has been this year, but, still, it’s hard to assume that Hodgson would change his mind. He already has several exciting young defenders to choose from.
Terry played for the senior team of England for almost 10 years and won 78 caps in that duration. He also scored a few goals here and there for the Three Lions despite playing back.
