John Terry narrowly avoided World Cup heartbreak after injuring his foot in training with Chelsea.

Former England skipper John Terry was sent for a scan by Chelsea after taking a knock on his foot; the England and Blue’s defender injured his right foot in training ahead of the clash against Portsmouth at Wembley this weekend.

As a result of the injury, Terry was sent to hospital to get a scan on the right foot and left the Chelsea training ground wearing a protective boot.

A statement on the club’s website reads:

“John Terry has today taken a knock in training and has gone to hospital for a precautionary scan on his right foot.

“He left Cobham walking freely in a protective boot, and we await the results which are expected on Thursday.”

Thankfully, later on Wednesday afternoon, Terry spoke to the press about the injury, putting to bed any fears of the dreaded metatarsal injury:

“I took a slight knock in training but with such an important match on Saturday the right course of action was to put a protective boot on my right foot and have a CT scan,” said Terry.

“The scan has shown there is no break and I am hoping to train tomorrow if not

Friday and of course play in the FA Cup final on Saturday.”

The news will come as a huge relief for both Chelsea and England fans, ahead of now only the FA Cup final, but the FIFA World Cup, that kicks off in 30 days time.
