Roy Hodgson is yet to speak to John Terry after saying in his press conference after his appointment that he would speak to him and Rio Ferdinand

New England manager Roy Hodgson is yet to speak to Chelsea skipper John Terry.

Hodgson said, after he was appointed, that he would speak to both Terry and Manchester United defender Rio Ferdinand before picking his squad for Euro 2012 in order to determine whether they could work together.

Terry faces trial in July after being charged with racially abusing Ferdinand’s younger brother Anton, an accusation he denies.

“I’ve not had any call yet but I’m focusing on the league and Chelsea at the moment,” Terry said.

“Hopefully, I get the call and I’m in the squad - and that goes for many of us here.

“I’ll always be there for my country.”

Aside from the legal case hanging over Terry’s head, questions have been asked of his form after he endured a torrid time in Tuesday’s 4-1 defeat at Anfield, with Liverpool stars Andy Carroll and Luis Suarez dominating him for 90 minutes.
