Jagielka injury may force Terry to face Spain
Fabio Capello may have to pick John Terry, his captain who faces allegations of racism, against Spain after it emerged Phil Jagielka will have to pull out of the England squad tomorrow. The Everton defender has a hairline fracture to a toe which has required pain-killing injections, and will probably report for duty, be examined by the medical staff and sent home. Jagielka's absence leaves Capello with four fit centre-backs, including John Terry and Phil Jones, whom he had hoped to field elsewhere. This may jeopardise Capello's plan to rest Terry against Spain and only play him against Sweden. Although the decision was made "for football reasons" unrelated to the racism allegations Terry faces, it would have taken him out of the spotlight. England will be based in the Polish city of Krakow for next summer's European Championship. The Football Association is keen for England to "embrace and engage with" local culture and history; a stark change from the isolated South African base for the 2012 World Cup. MORE
