[QUOTE]Former England captain John Terry has announced his retirement from international football after playing 78 times over nine years for his country.
Terry, 31, says the decision is in response to the Football Association's disciplinary charge over alleged comments to Anton Ferdinand.

The Chelsea defender was cleared at Westminster Magistrates' Court in July of racially abusing Ferdinand.
He said his FA personal hearing on Monday makes his position "untenable".

"I feel the FA, in pursuing charges against me where I have already been cleared in a court of law, have made my position with the national team untenable," he said.[/QUOTE]

Such a shame. He's still a great defender!

He may be an *******, but he will definitely be missed. He was their best player in Euro.

I don't think he lived up to the standards expected of England players and therefore am glad to see him leave. He may have been cleared of any legal wrongdoing but that doesn't mean he didn't let down the sport and the FA had every right to examine his conduct.
