TERRY ENDS ENGLAND CAREER

John Terry has this evening (Sunday) announced his retirement from international football.

This was a personal and difficult decision for John to take as playing for and captaining his country was a boyhood dream.

John first represented England in June 2003 against Serbia and Montenegro.

He played 78 times for his country and scored six goals, including the first full England international goal at the new Wembley Stadium against Brazil in June 2007.

The 31-year-old was named England captain in August 2006 and went on to lead his country 34 times.

John also won nine caps at Under-21 level.
