Ancelotti: Terry will be fantastic

Carlo Ancelotti has tipped John Terry to have a big impact on the upcoming FIFA World Cup™. Terry became the first Chelsea skipper to lead his side to the domestic double yesterday after a bizarre 1-0 win over Portsmouth at Wembley.

The smile on Terry's face as he lifted the trophy with Frank Lampard at the end contrasted sharply with the sadness he felt at losing the England captaincy in the wake of the allegations about his private life. Plenty of questions have been raised about Terry's ability to withstand the pressure yet over the last few weeks, as Chelsea began the surge that resulted in a domestic dominance only six other clubs have ever experienced, the 29-year-old seems to have got his old swagger back.

The story is too old to be commented.
