John Terry: No Unrest in Three Lions Camp

John Terry has dismissed all the reports suggesting a rift in England camp following their dismal show in a goalless draw against Algeria on Friday night. There are speculations that England players have fallen out with coach Fabio Capello after some abject performances against USA and Algeria.

England is now left with just one option: a win over Slovenia. Only a victory in their final group match could earn them a place in the last 16. Capello is also under huge pressure and it looks Capello could lose the job if England crashes out of the tournament from the group stage.

Former captain Terry is, however, confident that his team would go through to the knock out round. He also believes that it would not be fair to criticize the manager.

Terry said to the media, “We shouldn't be looking at excuses or criticising the manager. We're here, we're supporting and we are fully behind him. We know we've got his support as well and that's the main thing. I've seen a few reports myself this morning. Coming here on behalf of the players there's no unrest in the camp at all. We're obviously still disappointed from the game the other night, but we have to pick ourselves up. We have to win the game on Wednesday.”

Wayne Rooney has publicly apologized for his outburst at the English fans who were booing the England players after the end of the Algeria match. Regarding Rooney’s current condition, Terry said that the striker is ‘okay’, but disappointed with England’s performance.

Terry also revealed that all the members of England squad are utterly disappointed with those performances, but are determined to uplift their game and prove people wrong by putting on a good performance against Slovenia on Wednesday.
