thumbnail Hello,

The Blues defender is after another 50 games for his country.

Chelsea defender John Terry found his achievement in reaching 50 caps for England overshadowed yesterday by his national team-mate David Beckham reaching the record number of appearances for an outfield player - 109.

However, the Stamford Bridge man was delighted to reach his own personal milestone, and admitted that he dreams of one day perhaps overhauling Beckham's total himself.

"I've been a bit overshadowed but I'll take that [50 caps], it was a great achievement for Becks," the center-back told metro.co.uk.

"It was a great achievement for myself and that is the target when you first come into the squad.

"You set yourself a target and mine was 50, now I'm there I want to reach 100. If I stay fit I have a chance."

England comfortably dismantled Slovakia 4-0 in yesterday's friendly at Wembley, and now face Wednesday's World Cup qualifier with Ukraine with increased confidence.

The cost of victory has been high on the team's forward line though, with strikers Emile Heskey and Carlton Cole pulling out of the party with injury. Peter Crouch is also struggling with a hip problem, so Tottenham Hotspur's forward Darren Bent has been called in to the squad for Wednesday's game.
