Despite the Chelsea captain's upcoming trial for racially abusing his brother, Anton, the Manchester United man will put differences aside if required by new boss Roy Hodgson
Rio Ferdinand will inform Roy Hodgson that he is willing to play alongside John Terry for England at Euro 2012, according to widespread reports.
The Manchester United man has reportedly not spoken to Terry since the Chelsea defender was accused of racially abusing his brother, Anton, back in October and doubts had been raised as to whether the two could play together with the trial still unfinished.
Ferdinand has not played for England since June 2011, however, after a solid season at the heart of Manchester United’s defence Roy Hodgson is reportedly looking to include the centre-back in his squad for the European Championships.

Hodgson refused to be drawn on the matter in his first press conference as Three Lions boss saying: "I’ll have to get in touch with John and Rio to speak with them, hopefully face to face, and find out where they are in this situation.
“Until such time as I’ve actually spoken to them and found out where they stand in relation to the current situation, it would be wrong of me to comment.”
Terry has continued playing for England, despite being stripped of the national captaincy, for a second time, striking up a partnership with Gary Cahill that has translated to club football after the latter's arrival from Bolton.
