John Terry ruled out of England-France friendly

Chelsea manager Carlo Ancelotti says John Terry will miss
England’s friendly against France on Wednesday because of a back
injury.

The center back was ruled out of Chelsea’s 3-0 defeat to
Sunderland at Stamford Bridge on Sunday because of the problem.

Ancelotti says Terry ”is not able to play for England.”

The Italian manager says he hopes Terry will be fit to play in
Chelsea’s next league match, at Birmingham on Saturday.

Terry’s absence means England captain Rio Ferdinand is likely to
be partnered by Phil Jagielka in central defense against France at
Wembley.
