John Terry to miss Ukraine qualifier

MOST COMMENTED

John Terry's tough year has taken another hit. The England central defender will miss his team's World Cup qualifier against Ukraine on Tuesday because of an ankle injury he suffered in a 5-0 defeat of Moldava last Friday.

The FA said in a statement Sunday that ''following further treatment from the England medical staff today, John Terry will not be available for the World Cup qualifier against Ukraine."

Terry was stripped of the English captaincy in February when he was charged with racially abusing an opponent, defender Anton Ferndinand of Queens Park Rangers. The decision by the English FA prompted manager Fabio Capello to resign, and though Terry was cleared of the charges after a five-day trial in July, the incident has lingered in the public's memory.

Roy Hodgson, who replaced Capello in May, must deal with a long injury list in addition to Terry. Andy Carroll, Ashley Cole, Adam Johnson and Wayne Rooney are also sidelined. Gary Cahill and Phil Jagielka are vying to replace Terry as Joleon Lescott's defensive partner for Tuesday's match at Wembley Stadium. England beat co-host Ukraine, 1-0, on a Rooney goal at the European Championships June 19.
