Why John Terry's Foot Injury May Be A Blessing In Disguise For England

Sports News - March 07, 2010

John Terry injured his right foot in training today and has gone to the hospital for a precautionary scan, reveals the Chelsea website. The seriousness of the injury will be known tomorrow when results are released, but the news will be very worrying for Chelsea and England supporters who will be hoping that Terry mends in time.

While fans of the US men’s national team may be excited at the possibility of Terry missing the all-important June 12th World Cup match against England, the news may be a blessing in disguise for England supporters. I’ll admit that Terry has been strong in the last few games for Chelsea, but this has been one of the most inconsistent seasons the former England captain has had.

If Terry does miss the World Cup, it’ll be a perfect opportunity for Ledley King or Michael Dawson to step in to Terry’s shoes alongside Rio Ferdinand, if fit. If Ferdinand isn’t one hundred percent fit, then you could see King and Dawson combining as centre halves for England just as they’ve done so well for Tottenham this season. Meanwhile, Jamie Carragher and Matthew Upson would provide adequate back-ups for King and Dawson if either of them are unfit or not playing up to their potential.

What do you think? Is John Terry’s injury a blessing in disguise, or a massive blow if it turns out he’ll miss the World Cup? Share your opinion in the comments section below.

UPDATE: False alarm. The scan of John Terry’s right foot has been completed and it shows that there is no break. Terry hopes to be OK to play in Sunday’s FA Cup Final.
