John Terry Calls Knock Slight, Hopes To Play In FA Cup Final

John Terry is quoted by England’s Press Association (as seen in The Guardian) as “hoping to train” by Friday in anticipation of Saturday’s FA Cup final.

Terry confirmed that scans on his injured right foot revealed no major problems – avoiding a feared metatarsal break.

“I took a slight knock in training but with such an important match on Saturday the right course of action was to put a protective boot on my right foot and have a CT scan,” Terry said.

“The scan has shown there is no break and I am hoping to train tomorrow if not Friday and of course play in the FA Cup final on Saturday.”
