Inspirational defender has not missed a league match for the Blues this season.
In-form Chelsea captain John Terry will never play for England again, even if Three Lions head coach Roy Hodgson picks up the phone and begs him to come out of international retirement for this summer’s Fifa World Cup finals in Brazil, according to reports in the Daily Mirror.

The former England international skipper is currently enjoying an excellent campaign at the heart of the west London club’s back four, and what is more, the centre back’s partner in defence at Stamford Bridge is none other than Three Lions regular Gary Cahill.
All of which has led to plenty of calls of late for the 33-year-old central defender to end his international retirement and travel to Brazil this summer for the World Cup, with former England skipper Gary Lineker recently saying: “Must be hugely tempting for Roy Hodgson to pick up the phone to John Terry. Solid regular partnership with (Gary) Cahill. Best option by far.”
However, it is understood that even if Hodgson were to ask Terry to bring a premature end to his international exile, the answer would still be “no”, with the player said to still be angry with The Football Association for the way they handled his charge for allegedly racially abusing Anton Ferdinand two years ago.
