Former Chelsea manager Andre Villas-Boas has said England might find it hard to qualify for the 2014 World Cup in Brazil without former captain John Terry , who recently announced his retirement from international football.
"It's a massive, massive loss for England. John is a player with unbelievable talent and has helped this country so much, and the same for Chelsea, too," the Daily Star quoted Villas-Boas, as saying.
"In the end, they are his decisions, personal decisions. It's difficult for a player to take a position like this, but, on the perspective of England and qualification, it leaves Roy Hodgson in a difficult position, bearing in mind the centre-backs he has at his disposal," he added.
"I'm not putting into question the quality of the other players, but he certainly misses one player of great, great talent," he said. (ANI)
