John Terry ‘to Be Stripped Of England Captaincy’ Report Football Association

John Terry ‘to Be Stripped Of England Captaincy’ Report Football Association, JOHN TERRY will NOT lead the England team at Euro 2012 – after the FA decided to strip him of his captaincy – a report claims.
The BBC website says the Football Association intend to announce their decision before the weekend.
The shock move comes after its chairman David Bernstein yesterday contacted other board members over JT’s race case.
The defender denies racially abusing Anton Ferdinand and will stand trial on July 9 — AFTER the Euros.
QPR boss Mark Hughes last night slammed the date claiming it was to suit the Chelsea star.
Hughes is angry the case will disrupt Ferdinand’s and Rangers’ pre-season.
Sparky said: “If Terry goes to the Euros the trial will impact on his holiday.
“It won’t impact on his pre-season because he’ll get a rest after the Euros.
“It’ll just be his down-time but it won’t be Anton’s down-time.”
District Judge Howard Riddle set the date at a hearing on Wednesday after being told Terry’s Chelsea team-mates would not be able to appear as witnesses until the end of the football season.
The judge was also given a letter from Blues chief executive Ron Gourlay appealing for the trial to begin when Terry’s domestic and international footballing commitments were complete.
