Scare for Terry

LONDON, May 12 – England defender John Terry's hopes of playing in the World Cup hung in the balance Wednesday after the Chelsea defender was rushed to hospital with a suspected fracture in his right foot.In a statement, Chelsea said their captain had taken a knock in training ahead of Saturday’s FA Cup final against Portsmouth and "has gone to hospital for a precautionary scan on his right foot".

Chelsea added: "He left Cobham walking freely in a protective boot, and we await the results which are expected on Thursday."

If a fracture is confirmed, Terry will have little chance of featuring in England’s campaign in South Africa, which kicks off on June 12 against the United States in Rustenburg.

The loss of Terry would be a major blow to England coach Fabio Capello and would compound what has been a tough season for the defender, who was stripped of the national team’s captaincy earlier this year following revelations of an extra-marital affair.
