thumbnail Hello,

Chelsea captain wants to be part of the Three Lions' squad in Ukraine and Poland but insists he has not been contacted by the England boss and wants to focus on his club's run-in

Chelsea defender John Terry says he is hopeful of representing England at Euro 2012, despite having to speak to newly-appointed boss Roy Hodgson.

Hodgson had vowed to contact both the Chelsea captain and former centre-back partner Rio Ferdinand before picking his 23-man squad on Wednesday.

This is in light of the former's court trial in July after being charged with racially abusing Ferdinand's younger brother Anton - although Terry denies the accusation.

Speaking at Chelsea's Player of the Year awards, Terry said: "I've not had any call yet but I'm focusing on the league and Chelsea at the moment.

"Hopefully, I get the call and I'm in the squad - and that goes for many of us here. I'll always be there for my country."

Terry looked out-of-sorts in the Blues' previous match against Liverpool where his side lost 4-1, being nutmegged by Luis Suarez in the build-up to the Reds' opener before slipping to allow Jordan Henderson in to score.

He willl also miss out on the Champions League final after being sent-off for an off-the-ball incident involving Barcelona's Alexis Sanchez.
